Charles Le Brun and his “Treaty on the Report of the Human Physiognomy with that of Animals”

Research by Charles Le Brun and his “Treaty on the Report of the Human Physiognomy with that of Animals” is an inspiration to be able to create characters who can portray the different stories of the people we have encountered. These masks can also represent stereotypes, which serve as a mirror for the audience to recognize themselves or a neighbor.

The theme of animals is also related to the performance research for the physicality and rhythm of the actor.
