Transcendental is part of a trilogy that began with Emergenz in 2019, where a multicultural community was established thanks to the collaborative work between Kampnagel-Hamburg and Jose Vidal y Cia-Santiago. The starting point was to test Vidal’s thesis; there are energies that lie in the interspace between our bodies, that can be increased and dissolved, transformed and provoked. That is the formula that holds communities together.
Today, in the context we live, where no space and no contact can be shared, where bodies are isolated and the spaces between them seem insurmountable, Transcendental seeks to re-signify this community that was born with Emergenz, taking up the challenge of making the non-physical interaction of over 100 participants from Germany and Chile, a physical experience for all. Later, with Manifestation in 2021, the hope is to reveal the "transcendental" transformation that this community is experiencing in the way it understands and builds itself.
For the past 3 months we have been developing a virtual experiment where Transcendental transforms the lack of and desire for physical exchange, into a joint search for new tools and skills that enable "real" encounters in times of physical distancing. If you want to find out more about the project, join the virtual sessions and witness the magical and almost miraculous experience of how isolated beings become one only self, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or catalina@josevidalcompañia.cl.
