a Dance piece that unearths realities of intimate partner violence and sexual assault.



Imprints is created collaboratively by Cleo DeOrio, Olivia Schlanger, and Tiffany Van Camp. Imprints is a contemporary dance piece that puts violence against women at the forefront, addressing a topic that is so widespread yet still so taboo and misunderstood, or outright ignored and downplayed. Pulling from the direct experiences of artistic collaborators, research and statistics, Imprints is a project that combines facts about violence women experience with raw physical expression. It also sheds light on the level of trauma that many women are living with day to day as a result.
