Here, there, somewhere is a performance that deals with attention and orientation by placing next to one another an audio play and a live performance. The audience members are invited to listen and watch simultaneously as the two tracks of the performance unfold, come together and drift apart; how they mesh and disturb each other. Here, there, somewhere wants to get confused with the binary idea of private and public, words and movement, visual and visceral. It creeps in the corners, through the graveyard, dreams and clouds.
The project is initiated by dance and performance artist Tuuli Vahtola and realised together with sound designer-composer Iida Hägglund.
