CONCEPT

This performance is a fancy of an idea.

Such as a thought or conception, that potentially exists in the mind as a product of mental activity and find its concrete outcome in a plan, scheme or method.

Therefor this performance is a detailled interpretation within the action and the effect of a ‘snap’.

As we find the concept of an ‘idea’ in the philosophy of:

Plato, an archetype of which a corresponding being in phenomenal reality is an imperfect replica

Kant, a concept of reason that is transcendent but non-empirical.

Hegel, absolute truth; the complete and ultimate product of reason

 

This performance takes the audience into a shimmering moment.
