State of Exception

“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 Project 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 the Middle East.

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