This doctoral research focuses on investigation, reflection and analysis of the following practical and conceptual terms: memory, perception and micro perception, beyond the relations between them, from cutting some pedagogies directed at the actor's work, namely: the Stanislavski method and interpretive impulses and psycho-physical training of Grotowski. The question and the basic assumption of this project is precisely to try to question and discuss these concepts in order to make a practice of starting with concepts and memory and microperception resized. The concept of memory is based upon the reflections arising from two major works: "Matter and Memory," and Bergson's "Bergsonismo" of Deleuze. Since the concept of microperception has the state of the art works: "New Tests for Human Understanding", in Leibniz, "Leibniz and the fold" in Deleuze and "E-naked image perceptions and small" and "Full Motion" these from Jose Gil. These authors give us the starting point for conceptual analysis and will not be the object to analysis of the project. The theoretical reflection must be accompanied and crossed by practical investigation of researcher acting within the Grupo Matula Teatro, Campinas / SP (which is part of since 2000) and anchored mainly in the process of creating the play "Memory of Cana", developed by the theater collective Os Fofos em Cena, São Paulo / SP, to verify empirically that the validity of the theoretical concepts developed throughout this study in the practical exercise of acting.
