In neuroscientific theories, the borders between where one person stops
and another begins are blurred. There are no interacting minds or brains
but only interacting bodies or persons. By using psychological and
physical circumstances, Tertiary is a delicate trio that explores how
dynamic movement can allow us to witness a person's conceptual thoughts.
By instantly combining action and perception, the trio creates an intense
structure where meaning is created together.
The neuroscientific claim that 'watching is like feeling' is a function the
theatre world has revolved around and thus becomes the meeting point of
cognitive science theories and performance.
