In this project I intend to elaborate a research concerning concepts of structure and spontaneity through methodologies of corporeal mimesis and word mimesis that have been developed by LUME (Interdisciplinary Center of Theatrical Research - UNICAMP) and by my academic advisor, Raquel Scotti Hirson. The research material will be collected by observation of transvestiles, at streets and nightclubs in the city of Campinas, as well of inhabitants of Jardim Itatinga's neighborhood, also located in Campinas. With this material as a starting point and using the procedures of corporeal mimesis and word mimesis, we will try to experiment ways of structuring in the actor's body and voice several physical and vocal actions observed in these environments , working toward the formation and sustainability of a stage presence. We will use this experience to reflect upon the binomial relation of structure and spontaneity, specially concerning the question of organization and categorization of the material collected during the observation. Therefore, this research includes a practical stage and a theoretical reflection about what we expect to encounter in the work place, such as: physical actions, categorization of materials, corporeal mimesis, word mimesis and stage presence.
