The camp is the space that is opened when the state of exception begins to become the rule.” – Giorgio Agamben

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 her time working with asylum seekers and refugees in Ireland and coloured also by her recent visit to Palestine.

This highly physical dance work set to thundering percussion, text and voice, features a cast of outstanding Irish and international performers and delves into the world of ‘the other’ to try to understand and tear down the walls and borders that divide.

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.
