About the Show
Choreographed by Kalaisan Kalaichelvan
Impressions examines the nature of memory and meaning through Indian iconography — her moon-like face, his pearl-like teeth, her lotus-like feet, his elephant-like gait. How do we use the metaphor and simile to stimulate the transference from consciousness to the embodied? How does a phrase of mime and gesture act allow the body to access the past and future, the individual and the collective, the micro and the macro. In this solo, choreographer and performer, Kalaisan Kalaichelvan, explores how individuals are tied to each other in relation to the world around them.
