Improvising Generations is a cross-generational music and dance project based in Hertfordshire.
To celebrate the U.Dance National Festival coming to the East of England in 2018, young people and adults from across Hertfordshire came together, as musicians and dancers, to create a film to present at the festival. The film is inspired by the landscape and history of Highfield Park in St Albans.
"We are but a moment, here and now in this landscape, as we weave our way down the corridor of time. Yet we stopped and listened to the whispers in the trees and echoes of the past - to ask - what lies beneath our dancing feet and what the stories of times gone by?"
Funded by Arts Council England. The project is managed by BEEE Creative CIC in collaboration with University of Bedfordshire, One Dance UK and DanceEast, delivered by artists - Laura Chiabolotti, Jane Eve, Matthew Smith and Think About It Films. Supported by Trestle Arts Base, Highfield Park Trust and Hertfordshire Music Service.
