Pulse is choreographed by Claire Marshall in collaboration with dancers Libby McDonnell, Miranda Zeller, & Anthony Trojman.

Pulse was created at the Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse.

Pulse was choreographed around the existing space (as a location) around concrete support beams, graffiti walls & open areas (rather than on a traditional stage).

Pulse also drew inspiration from images of bygone days when the Powerhouse functioned as an industrial power station.

Pulse was the starting point of Claire’s quest to continue exploring the dance on screen medium, with the specific niche interest in making short dance on screen projects that are:

– inspired by the space they are created in, &
– informed by research of the history of the space where created.

Each subsequent film will be collaboration with a different filmmaker.
Pulse is a collaboration with Claire’s brother Director Grant Marshall.

The creative development component of Pulse was created with financial support from an Ausdance Qld Creative Development Grant &  as a Brisbane Powerhouse Powerlab.
