Abstract (Summary)

Hiraeth is a twenty-seven minute multi-disciplinary contemporary dance work that explores the effects of grief after two similar yet disparate traumatic moments of loss in my personal life. It encapsulates a small part of my experience in a movement landscape created by the combination of dancers on stage, large and small-scale video projections, and the stretching of time. In contrast to previous dance works involving grief, Hiraeth translates these experiences through a more subtle lens, as it examines the relationship between those we have lost and those we have left behind.
