Premiere of Vincent Dance Theatre’s latest film installation for Brighton Festival
Movement, spoken word, rap and striking visuals collide in Charlotte Vincent’s powerful and darkly funny new film installation.

SHUT DOWN was filmed on location in Newhaven and Kent by cinematographer Bosie Vincent, directed by Charlotte Vincent, ‘one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today’ (The Observer).
