When do your molecules dance?
- - -
Impulse Theatre brings a soft and joyful work of site-responsive dance theatre to you in local parks, hills, forests, and lagoons. molecular landscapes is a process-based project that started in early June with research visits and creative explorations of multiple sites across lək̓ʷəŋən and W̱SÁNEĆ territories. The team, spurred by their curiosities, have collaboratively crafted a long-form structured improvisation informed by research into local fauna and flora, our molecular ancestors, soft sculptures, local histories, the body in nature, and much more.
The project asks us to carry our bodies back into ecosystems that created us. It is a love story about the joy and magic of nature created. It is a reminder of where we came from, and where we pour our attention.
