Here is not there is inspired by childhood memories.
These memories follow us throughout our lives. They can determine who we are, much more than we are aware of.
They seem very far from our present, reality while in actuality they are still influencing our daily lives.
Those events are no longer in existence, yet they still remain in the forms of memories.
Is our past really in the past?
Here is not there is almost entirely performed through live text, which is the result of shared memories coming from the dancer’s childhoods.
