Impressioned explores how characteristics are reflected, transformed, and embodied. This is experienced through fluid exchanges of subtle qualities, occurring unconsciously and sometimes seamless. We change, adapt, and respond according to the kind of space or character we are interacting with. The piece unfolds through different gestures that are reflected between groups while maintaining a sense of individuality. These gestures interject one another, return, and develop, adapting to what comes next.
