ABOUT THE PROJECT

IM·PE·TUS
/ˈIMPƏDƏS/

noun  The force that makes something happen.

Through this project, we work to unpack the intentions behind our movement to (re)imagine, (re)create, and (re)encounter dance. We strive to be in a constant search for new inspirations, allowing us to constantly question the choreographies, interpretations, and performances that embody our narratives.
