In the course, Corazza - which also has important career as a theater director, ahead of the Compañía del Teatro Studio - conveyed his approach to the work of the actor, seeking to deepen the process of character creation.
Corazza accompanies the student in the character creation process, which he divides into four stages: preparation, imagination, action and text.
Preparation is the moment that generates creative power to act;
Imagination is the step in which it seeks to awaken, release and channel the imagination for that work;
Action involves the definition and development of the character himself; and work with the text is to deepen your sense and continue it throughout the narrative.
