Here, Still Here, Still
Here, Still Here, Still captures a woman who is looking back on recent events; she has arrived alone, and is alone still. The powerful work was developed by giving the soloist explorative experiences with several dance partners, and then taking the partners away. The performer is left with emotional and muscular memories of
what was, and the nuances that the presence of absence has. The audience joins her at a place where she is able to contemplate her past, from her present circumstance.
Here, Still Here, Still was granted research time as part of the prestigious development platform Choreodrome, organised by The Place, London. Lila Dance has been invited to present Here, Still Here, Still through a live video stream at the I Like to Watch Too Paradiso Festival in Amsterdam in July 2011.
