This project is interested in forms of autobiographical writing and such autorepresentação which they are performing in some significant examples of contemporary theater scene. The appropriation of biographical material in the composition of the scene, characters and drama is recurrent procedure in many creative processes. However, this material, in most cases, only figure as a catalyst during the test chamber works in aiming their integration fictional weft weaving staging and drama. What we want to address are some experiences that bring the issue of autobiographical in its statements. In other words, staging and dramaturgy are structured from a "self" which merges with the actor and / or the author who tells a story or personal experience. Since Philippe Lejeune who systematized one of the first research on the "autobiographical genre" by contemporary researchers who work on the notion of testimony as Selligmann-Marcio Silva, we have different approaches than would be the writings of the self. We intend to look into this bibliography are wondering how the theory of autobiographical, as it consists mainly from the 70s and its association with the idea of a creative memory can guide us in today's readings of autobiographical theater. We intend to highlight issues that much on procedures for the creation and elaboration on the various formal and problems on the reception side. (AU)
