The aim of this paper is to present how it was possible the apprehension of the students imaginary through the theater-education, using the methodological orientations of Jean Pierre Ryngaert about the dramatic games, under the epistemological view of the Imaginary Anthropology of Gilbert Durand. During the research the scenes were constructed without abandoning the necessary practices to the actor formation – initiation to the game technics – using the scenic space, the knowledge, the body dominion, the relation with the other, with the objects, the use of the voice, of the gestures and to make himself seen and heard, and the typology practices of Ryngaert (1985). The starting point was the district history. We consider that the cases that remain in people’s memory, represent images-remembrances, that emerged through the dramatic games practices that constitute the group’s imaginary, allowing the students group to re-signify their existence, through the scenes created and performed. Beyond a linear and rational temporality, the players left images emerge, characteristic of the colective memory and that nowadays are present in the group quotidian life. Past, present and future were mixed, like the physical and social body were mixed, in a fight against death in favor of lives, where the ossified gestures ended elucidating a state, a spirit problem. Despite of being afraid of death, living the day-to-day terror, fighting without achieving to win evil, threatened, corraled and lost, the players reveal themselves as situation mediators, in search of alternatives that allow that life can be lived.
