The term Trance-Portational Artistry came out of a desire to combine healing and performance art in a way that invokes transformation on a cellular level for the audience. This work began in 1995, during a time of intuitive migration, when I followed the impulse of the day to lead me to my next destination. I spent several years exploring the inner worlds with nature as my container and guide. Whether in the woods, on a mountain, or in the ocean, I allowed life to bubble up into performances that reflected the deeper aspects of self… the pain and the ecstasy, the triumph and the defeat.
This work uses trance to tap into the interconnectedness of all things. Each performance is an improvisational story that gives voice to the voiceless parts of ourselves. When we can honor that which our conscious mind has yet to acknowledge, we validate and heal parts of us we left for dead, somewhere along the way.
Each one of our stories is ultimately part of the collective story. The substance of our lives connects us and helps us understand each other. We have been given a gift, to use art as a tool to creatively get at the root of individual and collective trauma.
Creative expression reconnects us to our souls and helps elevate us towards more powerful and fulfilling life experiences. So beautiful, so rich, so trance-formative!
This style of work is ancient and calls upon the ancestors for support and wisdom to help us make sense of who we are in a gentle, yet provocative way. “Old wine in a new vessel”, to use a term coined by Debbie Ford, author of the Dark Side of the Light Chasers, is the essence of this work.
It is a gift to me and I am honored to share it for the benefit of all beings.
