The Here Trio

"An intriguing reflection on space, history and the transitory, uncertain nature of our humdrum existence."
Impact. Here. Perception and spaces. Sites. Scars. Borders. Edges. Belonging.
The politics of place impact us all in myriad ways but it is often forgotten that the body is our first home. The Here Trio brings the intelligence of the body to the fore, addressing often overwhelming issues of where we feel we belong and how we survive when things are beyond our control.
Taking location and recent histories as its starting place, this cross border co-production challenges preconceived ideas about site, history and the right to belong. Trauma mediates so much of our beliefs and behaviours, and with this in mind, The Here Trio strives to bring us back into the moment – to a place where those scars, present or past, no longer determine our future. Original production commissioned by Maiden Voyage Dance
Co-produced by Maiden Voyage Dance & Liz Roche Company Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council and by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland; by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland & by Belfast City Council.
The Here Trio also exists as a 45 minute filmed performance that was presented online in February 2021 in partnership with Project Arts Centre, Tipperary Dance Festival & Dance Limerick.
Filmed by Lucy Dawson and Shane Vaughan, and filmed and edited by Luca Truffarelli, this special fully-filmed version is made from the original live dance staging of the show filmed at The Source Arts Centre, Thurles for TPD’20 International Dance Festival, and the original video work of that live version in The MAC Belfast.
