IMPRINTS MEDIA KIT
"LET US BLEED THEN HEAL"
A California-based professional dance company, was founded by Hannah Millar in 2020. The company's first full-length evening show premiered July 2022 and has reached the depths of emotion in viewers, quickly gaining interest & popularity.
"Let Us Bleed, Then Heal" embodies the universal question that plagues humanity: “who am I?”. With both movement, spoken word and American Sign Language, this captivating, story-driven work immediately transports viewers deep into Millar’s journey of pain and healing since the death of her Mom in 2014. Millar intuitively allows the audience to peer into her darkest moments: the complexities of a Mother/Daughter relationship, leaving the family religion, coming out as gay, the confusion of conditional love, breakups, loneliness, deep betrayal and losing someone to cancer. In 90 minutes, Millar not only allows us to see our own pain reflected in her struggle, she also transforms that pain before our eyes into the peace, joy and healing that can emerge from looking deep into yourself. This story invokes us to ask ourselves transformative questions: How can I stop allowing my wounds to choose my path? Can I really heal my pain? The choreography and movement within this masterpiece not only comes to life with the skill of the exquisite Imprints dancers, it’s also infused with the essence of meditation, breathing, journaling, Qigong and Yoga (integral to Millar’s healing and creativity). Every aspect of this piece carries a presence and awareness that ignites emotion and vulnerability within any viewer. It is sure to leave you feeling contemplative of your own journey through this life.
As a company, we are committed to intentionally connecting to ourselves and patiently reminding ourselves to let go of the fears and doubts that often keep people from feeling free, curious and confident. Our mission is to imprint on our viewers and to share, through dance, our beautiful life stories with others and remind them that they too have the answers within to be happy and free.
