IMPRINT, our connection with nature, is conceived and devised by choreographer Anne Colvin.
IMPRINT is a collaboration between professional dancers and non-trained dancers from Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project to make dance true to the site and everyone’s experiences of it.
We walk, we talk, we notice, we mark make, we walk and talk some more, we respond and move. We laugh, we eat biscuits, we’re still, we wait, we respond and move some more.
This film and live performance is a collaboration with people from Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project and three professional dancers. IMPRINT explores our experiences of being in a wild and natural site, the memories, stories and physical sensations that we connect with, and the imprint that we both leave and receive on our journey. IMPRINT was filmed at Devil’s Dyke and in the studio by film maker Matt Bartram. You can read Anne’s blog about the development of the work here.
IMPRINT for Our City Dances is a South East Dance Welcome Project Commission and is also funded by an Arts Council National Lottery Grant.
