IMPRINT for Our City Dances

imprint for Our City Dances 2019 was an exploration into people’s relationship with nature. We documented the journey of the dancers and participants to create this film.

IMPRINT for Our City Dancers was an exploration into people’s relationship with nature, making dance with three professional dancers, and non-trained dancers from Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project. 

Anne, Matt and the dancers worked up on Devil’s Dyke, a beautiful part of the South Downs National Park, with a richness of natural and human history and created dance in response 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.”

‘IMPRINT for Our City Dances’ was a South East Dance Welcome Project Commission and was also funded by an Arts Council England National Lottery Grant.
