If your life shattered and crumbled, how would you get back up?
Woman Stood Regardless was inspired by choreographer Catherine Young’s work with a group of remarkable women from a Kerry-based women’s support service.
Four raw and tender female dancers weave universal truths through personal stories, seeking hope in chaos. Deafening silence and pounding percussion drive relentless, edgy dance. Woman Stood Regardless looks for the cracks to let in the light.
Post-Show Panel Discussion
Friday, 4 April
Free entry with performance ticket
“Learning from experience – seeing resilience at the heart of life”
Join us for a post-show panel discussion on Friday, 4 April after the premiere of Woman Stood Regardless.
Finola Cronin, UCD lecturer in Drama Studies and former dancer with Pina Bausch, will chair a conversation that brings together panellists from a variety of backgrounds to explore the idea of resilience as it relates to the performance and to women’s lives, equality and mental health.
Catherine Young, choreographer of Woman Stood Regardless; Catriona Crowe, Head of the National Archives and specialist in women’s history; Niamh Byrne, writer and course co-ordinator with An Cosán; and Robbie Gilligan, Professor of Social Work and Social Policy at Trinity College, will contribute their views and audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their responses to the discussion.
The event is free to ticket holders of either performance of Woman Stood Regardless.

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help.
