The MAC Belfast Feb 7th & 8th 2020

Taking location and recent histories as its starting place, this work 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, real or imagined, no longer determine our every outcome.

Choreographed by Liz Roche with dancers Ryan O'Neill, Sarah Cerneaux and Gloria Ros Abellana. 

Lighting by Stephen Dodd with original music by drummer Bryan O'Connell and sound design and visuals by Luca Truffarelli.


Presented by by Maiden Voyage Dance
Co-produced by Maiden Voyage Dance and Liz Roche Company
Commissioned by Maiden Voyage Dance as part of a double-bill of new work with Brink by Eileen McCrory.

Also performing Feb 11th Enniskillen, Feb 12th Marketplace Armagh, April 23rd Dance Limerick, April 25th &26th Samuel Beckett Theatre Dublin for Live Collision.
