Screening of ‘The Here Trio’
Date: Wednesday 10 March
Liz Roche Company opened 2021 with a brand new full digital dance piece, The Here Trio.
This piece navigated what it means to connect in the midst of a pandemic, post-Brexit, and the tension between our sense of boundaries and belonging.
As the performers challenged the preconceived ideas about the right to belong, the piece explored how this reflected on our impermanent existence in the rapidly changing environments we inhabit.
This gorgeous work created new resonances with the idea of what it means to be ‘here’, especially now as we navigate this turbulent moment of change.
Moving between the original live performance to the newly adapted and socially distanced version from October 2020, this piece blended a recording of a live production and a filmed interpretation.
The piece was also followed by the recorded Q&A aired on Thursday 4 March 2021.
Filmed by Lucy Dawson, Shane Vaughan and Luca Truffarelli, who also edited the new film and is a main collaborator, the piece was made in close collaboration with lighting designer Stephen Dodd and composer Bryan O’Connell.
Presented by Project Arts Centre, commissioned by Maiden Voyage Dance, co-produced by Maiden Voyage Dance and Liz Roche Company, and presented in partnership with Tipperary Dance Platform and Dance Limerick.
