Meaning of AbstraticsAbstract + Tactics
The name ‘Abstratics’ is formed by blending the words ‘Abstract’ and ‘Tactics’.
Abstract means “existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.” and Tactics means “an action or strategy carefully planned to achieve a specific end.” Therefore, the blend of the words ‘abstract’ and ‘tactics’ refers to “Giving physical existence to an idea or thought through an action (i.e dance) “
We assume that all abstract elements such as a single movement of the body, a small series of vibrations in the air or a flicker of light, are capable of expression. Observers and performers together contribute to the comprehension of meaning beneath the abstract and the Abstratics. Therefore, Abstratics becomes a two way process.
