Each rehearsal room, each group and each creation process engage in their practices, what we call work metaphors. Work metaphors are ideas, actions, images, verbal commands used in rehearsal practice, in classes or in creative processes to help actors achieve a state of experimentation. The use of work metaphors in theatrical practice enables the construction of a body-in-art, generating and expanding states of creation, repetition, revision and maintenance of physico-vocal template actions in the poetical, fictional and scenic context. This research investigates the potential of such provocations, searching to produce a more intimate relationship between concepts and actual practice and hence to produce a theoretical reflection that approximates the creative process, employing its paradigms, its language and terminology to discuss questions relevant to the work of the contemporary actor (AU)
