Theater is one of the oldest arts of mankind and has existed for a long time. Up to today, theater has undergone numerous changes, one of the arts that is closest to human life. The actor is a key piece in the theater, having been the subject of various reflections throughout the twentieth century and acquiring an important place in today's society. The fact that the actor represents other than himself, creating a Persona, leads us to question values such as identity or truth. It is in this context that the project uses photography and dramatic text as a means to reflect on these issues. It intends to approach the relationship between the written text and the picture when viewed as inseparable elements.
