Feet of Clay, a new dance work by emerging choreographer Livia MacPhedran, 'Feet of
Clay' combines dance with spatial design and stage elements created by
Amy Miller and Ian Hammond. Using a skillful eye for space and evoking
imagery, Livia plays with
the confines and expanse of the 'created stage' and the spatial relationships of collective lonesome bodies.
With a fresh-faced cast of Wellington’s finest professional dancers, Feet of Clay is a contemporary dance piece set to manipulate dancers physicality, motion and sight.
Throughout the piece Livia explores the moments we take for granted, the ritualistic ideas of life and the relationships we hold. The history of ourselves is always with us, closing in on our bodies and holding shades of pale over our thoughts. Simple rituals
and touch are the basic elements she manipulates to create movement and pull the dancers toward their own aspirations of the work.
