The Here Trio premiered in Belfast in February 2020 one week after Brexit. Performed as part of a programme of work around Boundaries and Belonging The Here Trio challenges preconceived ideas about the right to belong in a place and reflects on our impermanent existence in the rapidly changing environments we inhabit. The dancers movements convey bodies that are slightly 'out-side' of themselves, agitated and driven, even stressed. Voices are independent from their speakers, images fracture and reform, and the senses are stuck in over exaggerated comparisons. Time doesn't flow, but hiccups along, with memories and imagined histories erupting throughout. The piece is made in close collaboration with videographer and sound designer Luca Truffarelli and with lighting designer Stephen Dodd and composer Bryan O’Connell.
For this upcoming performance at Dance Limerick, The Here Trio will be reworked taking into consideration social distancing restrictions and the new environment and conditions for live performance due to the Covid pandemic. The piece will move between the original and the new live performance with an increased emphasis on film throughout. This creates new resonances with the idea of what it means to be "here", especially now as we navigate this turbulent moment of change in our lives."
