in this place” is a multidisciplinary project by choreographer Heather Maloney. A physical theatre work driven from the method of loci or memory palace, which relies on memorized spatial relationships to establish order and recollect memorial content.  A non-linear narrative that is woven from the reassembly of first memories as artifacts lost and found in the body. “in this place” opens a window into the extraordinary action of memory staged in the body.
