State of Exception - Cork

“What affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Martin Luther King

Following the success of Woman Stood Regardless (2014) and Ultima Thule (2016), Catherine Young Dance returns to the Firkin Crane with a powerful new dance work inspired by the experience of making work with refugees, asylum seekers

and a journey to the Middle East. Young’s new work State of Exception takes us right to the heart of the necessity to reach across, connect and challenge the divides created by the State of Exception, to act, to make and to find home in the common that binds us all. This powerful new dance, featuring a cast of outstanding Irish and international performers delves into the world of ‘the other’ to try understand and tear down the walls and borders that divide.

Supported by: Arts Council, Project, Dub City Council, Backstage Theatre, Shawbrook, Longford County Council, Kerry County Council, Dance Limerick, Dance Ireland, Firkin Crane

Catherine Young Dance has been making & touring work to critical acclaim, opening the Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival, Palestine in 2017 as well as presenting at many Irish festivals. The company is known for its powerful, percussive, highly physical work, that shows all shades of the human condition.
