Impulse Relay is an exciting new collaboration between dancers from Indepen-dance Young 1’z and musicians from Sensatronic Lab. Working together under the direction of choreographer Cheryl McChesney, along with Indepen-dance and Sensatronic artists. The group is comprised of disabled and non-disabled young people. Using cutting-edge digital technology, the dancers’ movements create sounds, blending seamlessly with the musicians’ soundtrack. The piece is inspired by themes of autonomy, confidence, pride and competition, all of which strongly relate to the 2018 Championships.
Weaving through the mediums of dance, music, installation, physical theatre and projection, the final performance aims to present an inspirational, innovative experience to the audience, challenging accepted perceptions of dance, music, and expression.
