Woman Stood Regardless

PREMIERE Project Arts Centre, April 4 and 5, 2014
TOUR Firkin Crane (Cork), Apr 6, Siamsa Tíre (Tralee), April 11, 2014

‘Catherine Young Dance is forcing me to reconsider my position on an art form I previously thought had escaped me, it has now engulfed me. Go and see it for the beauty and the pain.’ — Joseph Kearny (No More Workhorse)

‘If you were under the impression that the continued campaign for gender equality is an exaggeration, this production will smack you back to reality.’ — Chris McCormack (Musings in Intermission)

Woman Stood Regardless was inspired by the true stories of the remarkable women with whom Young worked with at a refuge in Kerry. Featuring a powerful all-female cast of international dancers, the piece explores how much we, as humans, can endure in a lifetime. Woman Stood Regardless finds out what gives us the strength and capacity to keep going, to get back up when everything has fallen apart.
