Match Make is a new Maiden Voyage commissioning initiative that brings dance artists and artistic collaborators together to work apart on short commissions during lockdown.
The second commission, In.-_At.-_If.-_, was commissioned from dance artist Maeve McGreevy and filmmaker, musician and designer Tom Hughes.
With time, In. – _ At. – _ If. – _ wishes to move through sound and listen through movement.
In. – _ At. – _ If. – _ was commissioned from Maeve McGreevy and Tom Hughes by Maiden Voyage for the Match Make initiative during the pandemic lockdown and was made in keeping with government guidelines at the time of creation.
In. – _ At. – _ If. – _ can be viewed here:
