This essay establishes a bridge between the process of creating the spectacle Cinco Tempos para a Morte and theatre genetics, using the principles of the latter. This methodological device is used to understand not only the final product (the spectacle), but also the collective creation process (the rehearsals) of the spectacle created and performed between 2010 and 2011 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, by the Usina do Trabalho do Ator group. By means of genetic studies, the analysis problematizes ways of recording the creative path, presenting the limitations of the documents used for the research. Finally, the study of the theatrical creation process is proposed as an infinite analysis.
