This research is an investigation on how movement practice embedded in the creative process from the very beginning can have a radical effect on the resulting performance. My exploration of the consequences of the use of movement as an integral part of the creative process has been conducted specifically through one major performance making project, and four other different performances that allowed me to further research and systematize a personal method of practice that I called “Traces and echoes”. To contextualize my research, I conducted an historical overview of the possible sources of movement practice as part of actor training and of performance making. I complemented my investigation with the analysis of the creative processes of three contemporary theatre makers, coming from very different theatrical backgrounds, but sharing a strong physical awareness in their creative and rehearsal processes: Kellie Hughes, Lluís Homar and Andrés Corchero.
