Description

TRANSVERBERATION; the act of beating, striking, or piercing through.

Interchangeably known as Religious Ecstasy, this tradition within Judeo-Christian mysticism recounts the experience of a subject receiving “the love of God”. It is described as an innate act of violence, penetrating its entrants through their heart in a fiery display. Though traumatic in nature, recipients of this endeavor also delight in its gratification…

It is ecstasy in the presence of agony,
the behavioral motivations of pain and pleasure becoming one.

TRANSVERBERATION by August & Company is a movement-based rendering of this consecrated hedonism; anguish held with reverence, arousal begotten by torment.

“The pain was so great, that it made me moan; and yet so surpassing was the sweetness of this excessive pain, that I could not wish to be rid of it.” - St. Teresa de Ávila (c. 1559)
