Teatro (Theatre)

This was intended to be my first performance. It was about the urge I felt to question the classical training, the narrow views and the dogmas that were passed on to me in theatre school as irrevocable truths. I wanted to denounce all those rules that were imposed on me by showing that there are many other ways to act or build a performance. 'Teatro' was divided into two different moments, using the same text as the base: the first was ironic and over-theatrical; the second was sincere and discreet.
