Theatricality has been discussed in recent decades in different research centers in the world. In Europe join the discussion of this great theme, authors discuss the role of the creation of the performers in the pieces of dance and theater. Nowadays, we have authors like Brandstetter, Fischer-Lichte, and Foellmer that address this issue as the result of the interaction between thinking, feeling, and memory. The Freie Universität -Berlin aligns these German authors, producing research and strategies for teaching that reflect in their courses and in research of his students. These facts formed the backdrop for the construction of a research hypothesis, by this researcher, who asks about the conditions of scenic interpreters filing memórias- lived in their bodies over their lives, especially when they participate in works where are directed or choreographed. Additionally, this hypothesis discusses the memory action process in the construction of theatrical interpretation and how they trigger the form of gestures, movements, or songs. The autobiographical reminiscences that the fall in the theatrical performance, today also called testimony describes places, family, friends, people; and the body of the performer, his instrument, will host all possible ambiguities, turning your "images acquis" in dimensions articulated by elements of theatrical language. The result of this research intends to develop tools so that the interpreter can have access to the "images acquis", through the memories entered in the own body. The success of such research will generate improvements that can be applied to courses and for theater and dance students in order to promote further learning. Therefore, it becomes necessary to carry out field research, which will implement these questions, with a group of graduate students and undergraduate of the Freie Universität Berlin / FU-B, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Susanne Foellmer which addresses the theatrical process from German authors mentioned above, as well as participation, the researcher, in seminars and classes with teachers of the Institut für Theaterwissenschaft. Add to the these actions, conducting research directly in the collection of the Library FU-B, and participation in meetings of the research group led by Professor Foellmer. All these activities will bring new accents to the research being developed and guided by PPGAC-ECA / USP. The processes developed along the proposed research field in the Germany, where the first investigations were initiated, of academic nature, the proponent researcher, will become initiatives for targeted cooperation between the performing arts department at São Paulo University and the Freie Universität Berlin / FU-B. In the same way, research will result in documents discussed reflected and transcribed in the form of video recordings, logbooks, observation and application interviews, which in turn may be published as articles, books, DVDs, CD-ROMs, and artistic presentation. It should be noted that the records of this investigation will be carried out in the field research stage at the FU-B and then the USP with German and Brazilian students and mentees. The method for carrying out the field research, qualitative nature, will be the Epistemology Metapórica, from Marcondes Filho, which proposes to build the procedure along with the research, understanding that the researcher participates in this building without previously defined models, justifying that the methodological procedures are built as needed by the ahead the project the dynamics inherent to it. Finally, it is emphasized that this research proposal, will be coming from Professor Foellmer to teach discipline in PPGAC-ECA / USP in the 2nd half of the year 2016.KEYWORDS: body archives, image acquis education, historiography,memories and testimonies, theatricality.
