Project Arts Centre - February 2022

The Here Trio

Project Arts Centre, Space Upstairs 17th - 19th February 2022

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 in a place. 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.

You live through that little piece of time that is yours, but that piece of time is not only your own life, it is the summing-up of all other lives that are simultaneous with yours… what you are is an expression of history.” – Robert Penn Warren
