A body standing alone in space says something; the choice to move is ours to make - but, how? When? Why?
Transitus unlocks the secret world of communication through physical intention, gesture, and the power of Speaking in Silence.
Art is an essential part of human evolution. It provides us with the metaphors by which we understand and interpret the world around us. It is essential to communication, which is the very heart of our human ability to join together and form communities.
As artists who craft narratives, we develop a deep understanding of how to move our audience. We must inspire them to listen, to think, to feel, and to question. Thus our task goes far beyond ‘entertainment,’ beyond even style or aesthetics; artists provide people and societies with a way of looking at themselves.
So how can institutions, governments, and organizations access the tools of art, and the craft of the artist, to engage with individuals and communities? And how can all of us, in turn, become artists of communication?
Transitus seeks to partner with organizations and help them access the tools of the performing artist to develop a new understanding of how we, as both individuals and as members of an interactive society, communicate.
In partnership with the Association of Nova Scotia Museums
We endeavor to create performance experiences that resonate and stay with audiences.
With our creative approach, which we call ‘Speaking in Silence’, we build original work with a wide range of artists and creative partners.
We offer a series of workshops for any age, group, or demographic.
From basics in non-verbal communication to building dynamic partnerships to body awareness, acting, dance, puppetry and performance, we can tailor any work session to the needs of your company or organization.
If you, your business or organization would like to connect with Transitus for bookings of performances or workshops, please contact Alexis Milligan at 902.473.9869.
