Catherine Young Dance presents

State of Exception

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Inspired by the experience of making work with refugees and asylum seekers in Direct Provision, State of Exception is a powerful and raw multi-cultural interplay of dance, music and text. Featuring a cast of outstanding Irish and international performers, this compelling and original dance work delves into the world of asylum seekers to understand, to connect, to challenge and tear down the walls and borders that divide us, finding home in the common that binds us all.

Catherine has been making and touring work to critical acclaim since 2011, creating powerful, percussive, physical, primal work that shows all shades of the human condition – its grit, edge, truth, honesty and beauty.

There will be a post-show discussion with Catherine.

Duration 60 min, no intermission. 12+
