The narrative contextualizes this experience, at the same time as it sets out the reasons why the author-teacher decided to embark on this adventure. In a comparative gesture, the initial expectations and the concrete reality of this experience are put into dialogue with each other. The most appropriate tone discovered to perform this critical analysis was the one of testimony. It is, therefore, a contribution that represents only a subjective point of view that mirrors the history and the personal experience of its author. A experiência passa-se na cidade de Nova Iorque doravante NYrepleta de ilhas e de submundos, tal como o universo da companhia que me acolheu: um ensemble de artistas, cada um naturalmente com as suas singularidades.
