IMPULSE was created for and presented at the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space in June 2015.

Developed over the span of five months, a company of eight graduate and undergraduate Drama students and two faculty members set out to explore the interplay of impulse and form within a context where scenographic elements actively impact the performers’ experience and vice versa, allowing the generation of impulse in the response to external stimuli as well as the inner imagination.

Company members:
Azri Bin Ali, Courtney Charnock, Skylar Desjardins, Jackie Dyment, Fasyali Fadzly, Dawn McCaugherty, Steven Rimke, Mike Sinnott, Brett Tromberg, April Viczko

The project received generous support from the School of Creative and Performing Arts, the Faculty of Arts and the University of Calgary.
