The objective of this project is to investigate, through a theoretical and practical research, the possibility of building a virtual body, as a basis for the development a corporal dramaturgy. Corporal dramaturgy, here, is a concept that intends to find in the body the tools to build a scenic language, where the corporal metaphors are the main vehicle of creation. This research aims to study and relate the concepts and principles about body and dance coming from the philosopher José Gil through the corporal practice of dance and theater techniques. To do so one intends to investigate the techniques of Rudolf Von Laban (time, space, weight and flow) and the methodology of transference, method of the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq in search of building a virtual body that is itself the creator of the corporal dramaturgy. The relevance of this project consists in broadening the perspectives on the corporal research in the elaboration of dramaturgies in the theatrical scene, through a theoretical and practical approach, which finds, in the relationship between dance and theater, a path of investigation and transformation.
