This paper seeks to examine the notion of body from the perspective of Antonin Artaud, to discuss the processes of capture, as well as the possibilities of unclogging the body. We carry out a bibliographical cartography in every work of the author, published in Spanish and Portuguese. We found that for Artaud, there are three strata that propel the process of incarceration of the body: a first that embraces the idea of an awareness / reason overlapping the body, a second that mentions the existence of a soul / spirit condemning the potentialities of the body, and a third that deals with the struggle between the body x organism. Next, we mapped his proposal for the body's unconsciousness, based on two configurations of the same abstract machine: a first that encompasses the idea of cruelty which seeks to break with the productive organization of bodies; a second that deals with the creation of a body without organs, which would be a permanent search for intensities, that is, an active revolt against the strata that imprisoned the human body. Thirdly, we analyze Artaud's criticism of Western theater, to discuss the ways in which the theater gave up its transforming power. Then we will bring your inspirations about the Eastern theater, more specifically, the Theater of Bali, which propelled him towards the creation of a new theatrical practice. Finally, we will discuss the actualization of the concrete machine - the proposal of a new theater - the Theater of Cruelty, which we consider the concretization of all the virtuality and intensity of its elaborations.
