Presented by Liz Roche Company and Brisbane Powerhouse

When the distances between us are somehow increasing in a world that’s supposed to be getting smaller, how do we “bridge the gap”? 

TimeOverDistanceOverTime invites you to join a cast of six dancers as they wrestle with the physical and emotional distances they encounter while living at opposite ends of the planet.

As people today travel further, staying in touch becomes more complicated. Digital technology is the lifeline; but ultimately a poor substitute for the full presence of a person, standing beside you and understanding you—not just from what you say, but from the myriad physical messages that enhance our experience of each other.

Assisted by exceptional creative teams in Ireland and Australia, the show features sophisticated interactive visual design, film, sound and light compositions.
The dancers explore their constantly fragmenting and suspending physicality in relation to preserving their relationship over distance and time.

Supported by “I Am Ireland” Culture Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.


Roche's choreography is delicately woven but it's threads possess an elusive tensile strength. Entrancing.
