2.- Contribution of multidisciplinary practices for the interpretation of theater such as: Anthropology, Film Studies, Photography, Arqueology, History of Art, Video, Multimedia Communication.
3.- Practical analysis of specific texts or performances from the point of view of theater as a multidisciplinary cultural practice.
