About Catherine

 

Catherine Young creates thoughtful, engaging work, which inspires and connects with the viewer. Her constant questioning of life and humanity is evident throughout the work – both the struggle and the beauty, with movement verging from the delicate to the primal. Her work is highly physical in nature pulling from her own personal movement lexicon, derived from African dance and yoga and over the years, she has evolved her own particular distinct and unique artistic style.

As a choreographer, she is highly attentive to her dancers, their stories and their own particular way of moving, meeting them midway between her story to create works that have the power to touch the universal in us all.

Catherine’s sensitivity to music and its ability to deepen the work has led her to collaborate with composers and musicians on almost all of her work to date. Her passion for dance is unquestionable, her love of movement and what the body is capable of never ceases to amaze – and as long as there are life’s questions to be answered, there will be dances.
