Congratulations to HDC member, interdisciplinary movement artist Amber Downie-Back, who is the recipient of the Chrystal Dance Prize. The prize will support the project 'on the nature of...', an interdisciplinary work that explores themes of memory and nostalgia, while incorporating interactive and digital elements with dance performance and sound. Downie-Back will collaborate with Emilie van der Waals, a Netherlands-based contemporary dancer and choreographer from Sint Maarten, and sound designer Angus Gaffney, to push movement and sound in collaborative contexts with other media such as digital and video art.
