LIVES OF CLAY

THE CLAY CONNECTION in association with SUPPLE PRODUCTIONS

Conceived and performed by Vidya Thirunarayan 

Directed by Tim Supple 

Thrilling dance, original music and expressive live ceramics combine in a unique theatrical event, rooted in ancient myth and reflecting the creative force of women.  

Internationally renowned as a Bharata Natyam dancer, Vidya Thirunarayan is also a prominent ceramicist, and in 2015 began combining these skills in performance. Through dancing with clay and throwing pots on stage she found a new way to tell stories rich with drama and emotion.  

Prajapati, Sanskrit for potter, represents both the supreme creator and the lowest of the low; a duality that has inspired this intriguing new work.  

Directed by Tim Supple, choreographed by Debbie Fionn Barr, with original text by Vayu Naidu and score by Barry Ganberg, designed by Julie Landau, Lives of Clay is a vivid and vital theatre experience, full of heart and made of mud. 

“Awe inspiring performance – a wonderful immersive experience” audience on Voices From the Kiln 

Vidya Thirunarayan combines her work as dancer and potter under the banner The Clay Connection. Lives of Clay is presented in association with Supple Productions. 

 

Running Time: 45 mins
