An Impression

(2021)

Dance; 37 minutes



Faced with relentless change, is our basic instinct to hold onto the familiar? An Impression, as one part of a double-bill entitled Seeing ______ Through the Eyes of Impermanence asks a critical question about these extraordinary times: how do we embrace impermanence with bravery and compassion?

︎

An Impression draws from the dream-like paintings of Van Gogh, Monet and Shelly Tsang to generate poetic scenes that evoke the idea of inevitability. With startling nuance, five artists situated on a canvas create moving vignettes of everyday situations breaking down or coming apart to include what’s beyond.
