As we lose our memory, are we losing our history? How do we personally cope with political trauma or social upheaval? What stays within us, and what are the consequences of forgetting? This Here. Land investigates the turbulent histories of the Philippines and Australia, from colonisation to dictatorships, natural disasters and class warfare. Unearthing real and fictional fragments of memory, This Here. Land weaves together a hypnotic visual and theatrical experience through shadowplay, animation, live performance and storytelling.

This Here. Land is an exquisite new theatre work by LabAnino: a collective of Australian and Filipino artists who have been working together for over a decade and whose work spans performance, installation, writing, animation and sound. Developed between Australia and the Philippines over the past 2 years, This Here. Land is a moving and evocative response to turbulent global times.
