A Call To You
Originally created at Backstage Theatre for the Dublin Dance Festival in 2022, ‘A Call to You’, Catherine Young’s passionate celebration of life, togetherness and dance, now embarks on a national tour, opening at Backstage on 22nd April 2023.
‘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 and live music directed by Young’s long-time collaborator Martin Schärer, and inspired by Ukrainian folk dance traditions, A Call To You offers an antidote to the imagery of war and the endless rhetoric of politics. As words fail, the body now speaks – untamed and unapologetic.
Catherine Young is Dance Artist in Residence at Backstage Theatre.
This tour is funded by Arts Council’s Touring Award with the support of the NASC network
