O Mestre (the Master) addresses the Actor's relationship with learning, updating and improvement.

It is a project about the transmission of knowledge and the essential figures that this act presupposes: the one who knows and the one who does not know. About the roles that each one takes so that this relationship can exist. And about the development of this relationship. 

I invited the artist Michel, currently my tap dance teacher, to research with me about this (mainly) male figure and to co-create a performance that reflects on the autonomy in a learning process.
