On Invitation is an experiment about the relationship between Actress and Audience.

I am inviting  the Audience to reflect about our roles. Under the umbrella of autonomy, I am proposing a negotiation, a conversation about the authorship and the responsibility we both have in what is being presented.

I am inviting the Audience to play their role.

Created during the Master of Theatre Practices as part of my research about the Autonomy of the Actor, On Invitation is the first theatre project of número cinco.

This performance is recommended for a maximum of 20 audience members.
