Who we are 

1714479346_adobe_express_20240317_1654080_1.jpgNew Impulses was created in 2023 with the intention of promoting dance artists in the South West and beyond by providing a chance to connect with each other and present themselves in a performance setting. It brings a unique program of entirely new and exciting dance into the city of Bath, and has entertained well versed audiences and new comers to movement alike.

We especially champion lgbt+ visibility and issues as well as mental health and environmentalism in our work and are strong supporters of diversity in the performing arts.

This year, New Impulses is once again striving to provide opportunity to1714486758_58015-17140286851648-m.png early career artists and to curate high quality programs for Sparkfest Bath by producing a triple bill of new works by young choreographers and setting up this fund to support our collective of creatives, which also expands to Visualeyes Productions, producing an additional show at the same venue.

 

Why we are fundraising 

New Impulses is by early career artists for early career artists. As a result, we are working with incredibly limited funds, often even operating at a loss to make producing our events possible. Still, we are committed to creating intricate and ambitious works to present to you, which involves a high amount of working hours and necessary equipment. Additionally, we strive to provide all collaborators and artists involved in these productions with reimbursement for their time, work and any additional costs that might occur during their time with us.

Any additional money will go to our dancers, choreographers, musicians etc. to honour the time and skill they invest into the work, and support their ability to focus on their craft as much as they might want to.

Our work

This year we are once again hard at work for various dance performances at Widcombe Social Club in Bath on the 31st of May and 3rd of June. 1714479043_e2fb5282-efd2-4110-84e7-32f8cd09da17.jpeg

 Our creatives are choreographing, practicing, designing light and sound, composing music, constructing stage designs, conducting creative research and much more!
