How did you get involved in working with Liz Roche Company & Maiden Voyage Dance on their recent work The Here Trio?
I have been working with Liz Roche Company for a number of years and when she told me about the project The Here Trio, I was delighted that she asked me to take part in it as it sounds like an exciting and interesting dance project to work on.
You made the film work for the original live production in 2020 – can you tell us how this complete film work of The Here Trio differs from the original filmed work?
The original video was made as a documentation of a live show. This original video was then integrated into a new live show, where the new cast of dancers interacted with their counterparts in the video, opening a dialogue between now and then. The result is therefore a film of a performance in which the original video is somehow part of the narrative of the show in the constant questioning of where we are…
How have you found collaborating with such an esteemed team of creatives on this project?
It was an amazing adventure working with such a great team, not only with Liz Roche and the inspiring dancers but also with the whole team like Stephen Dodd, Sebastian Olivera and Bryan O’Connell.
Would it be correct to say that this film is essentially a ‘film within a film’?
Yes, it is also a show within a show.
I think it would be interesting to make a new version of the show around this latest video to see how the dialogue between dancers and time could further develop, and of course film it again. Like having a mirror in front of a mirror that will duplicate infinite interacting images.
With all the Covid restrictions causing havoc on live performance – film seems like a good way for audiences to see the work – do you feel this gives an opportunity for a broader audience to see dance?
Video has always been a great opportunity for dancers and companies to present their work. Along with the possibility to reach a broader audience. Video has offered the chance for artists to look at and get inspiration from other artists from all over the world.
I think this will have a great impact on the artist scene of the future.
