From the birth of cellular life, we come into this world slowly remembering who we are. Stardust from the Universe, ephemeral and eternal incarnations, the embodiment of infinitesimal possibilities of becoming.
Unfolding our existences, moments in movements. Fugitive, elusive, and expressive substances that vanish away, yet diffuse their energetic propagations in space.
« I feel, I seek, I welcome abundance » widens the perceptions acuity about moving bodies and the atomic expansion of their psychical power into the physical realm.
In a present moment, a chance to re-actualize one’s existence at each moment life presents itself.
Dance can be a practice of introspection, transformation, and transcendence of one’s subjective experiences into a worldwide journey.
In the piece Maïeutics, Tiffany inspires her movement inquiry from the Socratic art of bringing the human soul to birth through introspection to reach transcendental consciousness. For this, the performer nurtures her personal truth within her self-achievement potentiality.
The void of existentialism perforated unveils an ego to its authenticity and reminiscence of its essence. Existence manifests in the mind and receives another name that is called consciousness.
The antecedent energy of its awareness becomes thought, therefore actions are concretized in the material dimension of the subject who creates her own surrounding reality.
As an extension of the performer’s movement research Transcendental Embodiment (TE), Tiffany reflects on the holistic experience of moving through conscientious corporeality, phenomenological and metaphysical inquiries.
She uses the Platonic ideology ‘Têchnè’ to re-investigate the essence of acquired techniques through movement reflexivity according to the study of their phenomenons in active meditations. TE tends to universally integrate both sciences and spirituality to unite them as one, so-called metaphysical unity. The tangible and intangible bodies expound the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual).
