Taking advantage of the presence of the actress, the Oficina do Espetador project created the workshop “The Art of the Actor”, a theater masterclass to be guided by Lídia Franco, who will share her knowledge of the art of acting, based on a solid professional training that began with dance and extended to theatre, namely to the domain of the Method of the Actor's Studio (Lee Strasberg), which serves as the basis for the construction of the characters to which it gives body and voice.
