Metro Arts and Mad Dance House present a Creative Development Showing of
THE SAD CLOWN
By Lydia Kivela
When you wear a different mask for everyone you meet, life is a performance that never ends.
Centered around the experiences of a young non-binary artist and their journey to self discovery, The Sad Clown follows different characters and the personalities they create to survive and “find” themselves.
Using dance to explore and highlight the constant battle between the internal and external, this piece aims to highlight just how “out of hand” attempting to conform to social standards can get. It also touches on the importance of finding, harnessing and celebrating the ever existing synergy between feminine and masculine energy.
