What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
Reminiscence is the third instalment of an ongoing dance film series by dancer and choreographer Lucy Doherty. After losing her mother Jane to breast cancer in 2014, Lucy is endeavouring to create and share a short dance film each year in honour of her mum & as a way to reflect on her personal journey through grief and loss.
"When we lose somebody we love, it is natural to seek the emotional support they once provided to us in other people, relationships and circumstances when really the comfort we are seeking and ultimately our healing is already existent within us. The deepest bonds of love can not be broken, rather they become a part of us and are calling us to remember what is already there."
