Its author says about the book: “The intention of this book is to continue a space for theatrical and pedagogical research, to give directions, to think, to philosophize and to contribute to the quality of life. I do not seek with it to develop a method or an action manual, nor will a catalog of exercises be offered. I don’t like the idea of being too didactic or scholarly, I think that a book serves as a generator of motivation. I prefer a certain uncertainty before the thought and its practice than directing a path in something as uncertain as the theater. It is a book about acting and the comic craft with the aim of helping actresses and actors on their way.”
