Following its successful sold-out premiere at the Dublin Dance Festival in 2022, Catherine Young, Kerry’s Dancer in Residence brings her new work A Call  To You to Siamsa this Spring as part of its National tour.

A Call To You emerges from the urgency of the incomprehensible times we live through. It is a call to come together; to explore the fragility and friction of community. The strength of the many.
Featuring a cast of outstanding international performers, live music directed by Young’s long-time collaborator Martin Schärer, and inspired by Ukrainian folk dance traditions. A Call To You is a passionate celebration of life, togetherness and dance. It offers an antidote to the imagery of war and the endless rhetoric of politics. As words fail, the body now speaks – untamed and unapologetic.
Originally created at Backstage Theatre for the Dublin Dance Festival 2022, this tour is funded by Arts Council’s Touring Award with the support of the NASC network.

This is Irish dance making at its best; political, urgent and intelligent. Book it for your festival. Fund it. And if you ever get the chance, go and see it.“  - RTE 

Musically and choreographically “State of Exception” delivers a powerfully visceral experience, and one of the most compelling depictions of the refugee crisis to date.”  THE ARTS REVIEW **** 

We look forward to welcoming you to Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland.
