Catherine Young Dance

CATHERINE YOUNG DANCE ... To move and be moved. To create powerful, physical, primal, visceral human work that touches, goes deep, transcends. To show the human condition in all its shades through the physicality of the human body, its grit, edge, truth, honesty, beauty. To have an energetic exchange with an audience. To allow the audience space to feel, think, be. Sweaty, raw, hungry, percussive, pulsating work. Connecting the inside with the outside.
