AMEN | Tiffany Nicole Clark

Otion Front Studio resident Tiffany Nicole Clark presents AMEN - an immersive Apocalyptic Initiation Experiment.

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

"AMEN"

ENTRY INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD THROUGH A PSYCHOLOGICAL PROCESS - INDUCED THROUGH MOVEMENT, SOUND, AND SURRENDER.

THE BIBLICAL BOOK OF REVELATION, TOLD BY THE APOSTLE JOHN, DESCRIBES THE APOCALYPSE - THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE REVEALING OF THE DIVINE MYSTERIES.

"AMEN" ESCHEWS PARANOIA FOR A PARADIGM OF PROPHETIC PRONOIA AND EXPLORES THE APOCALYPSE AS A PERSONAL PROCESS OF INITITIATION, THROUGH WHICH BOTH THE FUTURE OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY IS TRANSFIGURED AND UNVEILED.

THE WORD "AMEN" IS A SUBMISSION TO THIS HIGHER INTELLIGENCE, AND SIGNIFIES DIVINE CONFIRMATION.

"AMEN" COMES AT THE END OF EVERY PRAYER, OR COMMUNICATION WITH THE HIGHER SELF, BECAUSE IT DUALLY REPRESENTS BOTH AN END, AS WELL AS THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING NEW. IT MARKS THE SPARK OF MANIFESTATION -

THE MOMENT THE COSMIC MATCH IS STRUCK.

IN THIS MOMENT, ONE RECOGNIZES THE SUSPENSION OF ONE'S BEING ACROSS THE CHASM THAT LIES BETWEEN ASKING AND RECEIVING. THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL.

IT IS WITHIN THIS DARKNESS THAT ONE MAY CONTACT THEIR DEEPEST SHADOWS, AND WELL AS THEIR HIGHEST ANGELIC NATURE.

JOHN DESCRIBES SEVEN SEALS THAT SECURE THE GREAT SCROLL IN HIS VISION OF THE END. THE SCROLL CONTAINS SECRET INFORMATION KNOWN ONLY TO GOD UNTIL ONE IS FOUND WORTHY TO OPEN IT AND LOOK UPON THE CONTENTS.

"AMEN" REPRESENTS THE ONE WHO ENCOMPASSES THE END IN THEIR BEING. "AMEN" IS ONE WHO HAS UNLOOSED THE SEVEN SEALS WITHIN THEMSELVES AND COME INTO UNITY -BOTH HUMANITY'S ULTIMATE AND ITS UNDOING, WHERE EXPANSION AND COLLAPSE EMBRACE LIKE EARTH AND SKY.

AMEN.

Sebastian, Tell Aware

SEBASTIAN TELL AWARE INSTA.jpg

A performance conceived by Jerome AB through the Otion Front Studio Residency during the month of May 

Sebastian, Tell Aware is an exploration into the reversal of one’s attachment to the grief behind, before and after the death of a loved one. 

To detach from the inability to let go is to reaffirm the love that has existed

    to remain in existence.

This performance functions as a five-part play, a mental map framed by the five stages of grief.
