State of Exception (2018)

What affects one directly, affects all indirectly" - Martin Luther King 

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.
