Seven users take part, accompanied and directed by a direct attention monitor and two amateur volunteers in the world of theater.

Sessions are structured as follows:

The actors elaborate the dialogues with their vocabulary and their way of doing things, that is: as they usually say things.

The material supports used are visual cards of emotions, actions, animals, props (objects that appear on the scene) and the visual script in comic format, as the example you can see in the illustration on the right , where two moments of one of the plays they have created and staged are staged.
