HMP Practice Session #8

The Practice Session #8 took place on Saturday 25.10. at 12-15 at Zodiak studio B2 and was led by Sami Henrik Haapala.

In this HMP session we’ll be examining impulse. In my doctoral research I’m examining impulse as a starting point for dance, acting or other performing. I’m considering impulse as the smallest possible unit in performing. The impulse can be physical, emotional or intellectual. It may be born in the senses or in the mind. It may be something completely different. Impulse as a concept is very familiar to improvisation in dance, but I’m confident the thinking about impulse can be developed further and transformed. I’m searching for a way to a more specific and more precise use of impulse in any action.
