Following its sold-out two night run at the Dublin Dance Festival in 2022, Catherine Young Dance is bringing new show, A Call To You, to the Town Hall Theatre, on Tuesday May 2, as part of a national tour.

Featuring a cast of outstanding international performers and live music and inspired by Ukrainian folk dance traditions, A Call To You is a passionate celebration of life, togetherness and dance. It offers an antidote to the imagery of war and the endless rhetoric of politics. As words fail, the body now speaks – untamed and unapologetic.
