"SYNAPSE, an artistic impulse" is a 30 minute work that knits 3 premiere pieces together into one. It opens with a solo for Catey Ott Thompson called "Yesterday's Tomorrow" followed by a new trio and quartet titled "Train of Thought" and "Future Letter to My Love." The emotional tone of the solo begins in a reflective and pensive light to describe the feelings that surround change and the resistance to change, but then shifts to a more up-beat rhythm, offering up the concepts of acceptance, moving forward, and staying fluid and strong through life. "Train of Thought" is a quartet for Natasha Posey, Sarah Chomeau, Rebecca Johnson and Ott Thompson that explores the synapses and artistic impulses of the brain and nervous system, moving in and out of gray matter, electric currents, and synchronicity. "Future Letter to My Love" is a trio for Posey, Chomeau, and Johnson that revolves around the idea that there are memories and personal stories in each of our minds that we would like to share with a loved ones someday, but now is not yet the right moment. The dance piece is based on images and emotions based on the letters that each of the dancers wrote to a loved one. The music for this concert was composed by Randall Woolf and the set was designed by visual artist Meghan McKale.
