FLATFOOT GOES SQUARE (article first published : 1999-05-16)

The Flatfoot Dance Company, housed and supported by the Drama and Performance Studies Programme on UND campus, offers a season of intimate and challenging contemporary dance work made especially for the confines of the Square Space Theatre. Working with invited guest choreographers, Flatfoot Dance will explore the tensions and releases of contemporary life in South Africa through five groundbreaking new works.

Artistic director, Lliane Loots's new work Warrior Marks, deals with the scarification and tribal markings of the female body as an analogy for the scarification of the land through the legacy of apartheid policy. The work is complimented by Durban artist Lene Tempelhoff's historic slides of Cato Crest squatter camp.

Award winning choreographer, David Gouldie has created a solo work for Flatfoot which will premier as a work in progress. Linda Peyters returns again to work with Flatfoot in a piece called Part 1: Just a note to say thanks. Dealing with matrilineal lineage, this work tells the story of three women's lives as they dance to the beautiful and haunting sounds of Billy Holiday.

Master's exchange student from London University, Shivanti Lowton's work, Cyberphantasm, is a fast-paced dance piece that works off the rhythm of drum and base music as the basis for a new dance language. Finally, Garth Naude's new work, D.S.M.V, offers an exploration of neurosis that manifests itself in a gestural and physical language; it is a dark and powerful new work.

Flatfoot Goes Square runs in the Square Space Theatre from May 26 to 29 at 19h30. Tickets are R12 (R6 students and scholars). e-mail wagnerc1.hum.mtb.und.ac.za for ticket details.
