Artist and choreographer Anne Colvin, tells us more about her project IMPRINT which has been co-commissioned by South East Dance for Our City Dances festival and the Arts Council. Anne will be hosting a live on-site sharing of aspects of IMPRINT which takes place at Devil’s Dyke, just outside Brighton & Hove, on Friday 7th June at 2pm. Join us at the Devil’s Dyke Pub car park to experience Anne’s unique and original work.

IMPRINT is an exploration into people’s relationship with nature, making dance in response to wild and natural sites.

We’re working up at Devil’s Dyke, a beautiful part of the South Downs National Park, with a richness of natural and human history and ways we connect with nature.

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.

All of this is being captured on film by film maker Matt Bartram.

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