"If you were under the impression that the continued campaign for gender equality is an exaggeration, this production will smack you back to reality." Musings in Intermissions on Woman Stood Regardless 

"Catherine Young Dance is forcing me to reconsider my position on an art form I previously thought had escaped me, it has now engulfed me. Go and see it for the beauty and the pain." No More Workhorse on Woman Stood Regardless

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 Project 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.

A panel discussion will follow the Friday 23rd March performance of State of Exception at Project Arts Centre. Bryan Fanning, professor of Migration and Social Policy at UCD, will chair a discussion with Lucky Khambule, head of MASI – Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland, Vukasin Nedeljkovic of Asylum Archive and Donnah Sibanda Vuma, Place of Sanctuary scholar at UL.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

PROJECT FATIMA: ALL IN

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
