at our feet

At Our Feet is a meandering journey through Gott’s Park, that navigates through woodland, parkland, water and movement. It is a dance film to celebrate and magnify the natural movement of Armley Park and Gott’s Park. This celebration of nature is echoed by the harmonising of a human body which curls, and slots, and folds itself into spaces, but also tramples, and runs and swings all over it.

Running hand in hand with the movement film is a route that maps the physical and virtual journey of the film. You can use these maps to take yourself on a journey through the park and experience it in the real world, as well as virtually in this film. The walking instructions are intentionally liberal, and also intentionally strict, aiming for audience members to both lose and find themselves in an extraordinary place nestled in Leeds. Use them to make sense of the film, or use them to explore the spaces beyond the camera, or not. The choice is yours.
