“But it’s just this peaceful moment,
When the town and all about it
Is around you, but not on you.”

Siblings Sam and Niamh are back living in their family home. Lately, they’ve been falling into the same old patterns, which is either comforting or depressing - they’re not sure which. For Sam, days of working at their late father’s garage and coming home to First Dates on the telly suits her just fine. For Niamh, there’s something missing.

The quiet story of their lives, of day-to-day rhythms set in the hometown they've never truly left, changes completely when their older brother Jack returns home after disappearing more than half a lifetime ago.  With all that has happened, why has he chosen to come back now? And what does his return mean for their family?

Murmuration returns with You’re Still Here, their third show after Will I See You There and Summertime. Created in collaboration across three countries, You’re Still Here uses an intimate, intricate textual score, to explore togetherness, estrangement and what we owe to one another.
