Inspired by the Brutalist movement in architecture, with its emphasis on massive exposed concrete construction, and a wistfulness for the anti-bourgeois spirit of an earlier era, Impact features a cast of 15 performers inhabiting a dystopian world in the near future. With scenic design by Alice Malia and commissioned music by Aaron M. Gold, this new contemporary dance by Kristin Damrow will lead audiences through a mirror world eerily like our own.
