impulse theatre: creating in the expanse
Impulse Theatre creates embodied interdisciplinary theatre and dance performance. The company hosts a community of local, regional, and national artists to collaborate, conspire, create, and learn. Impulse provides springboards for arts workers and performance makers to test new creations, develop their agency, and bridge the gap to the next level of opportunities. Impulse carves out space for work outside of the mainstream and seeks to challenge audiences' relationship to performance.
Impulse Theatre was founded in the summer of 2010 on a rock in James Bay, Victoria. We have created over fifteen new highly visual and engaging works since inception and have brought work to upintheair's rEvolver Theatre Festival, the Belfry's Spark Festival, Intrepid's Winterlab, UnoFest, and YOU Show series, Theatre SKAM's Bike Ride, the Victoria and Vancouver Fringe Festivals, and the Firehall Arts Centre's BC Buds Festival. Impulse is primarily based on the beautiful territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən/Victoria, British Columbia, but is looking to expand its horizon across the world.
