DI Mentored Residency: Catherine Young

Mon 4 Dec 2017 - Fri 8 Dec 2017
12:00 - 18:00

Catherine will be working with mentor Nacera Belaza on her own solo performance practice over the course of the residency. Having been on the outside of her work for the past 5 years, Catherine will explore being back on the other-side under the watchful eye of a mentor and be challenged to go deeper in her lines of inquiry. Areas of interest include: durational practice, working with time; ways to induce a real awakening of consciousness in performance to find truth in every gesture; ways to separate self from body in order to observe and critique movement habits but to then unite all of self in performance; to explore the bond between audience and spectator and to push boundaries here but ultimately deepen the relationship between both. To find a practice as a performer that is unique, truthful, engaged and connected and to awaken the consciousness of the body to open up possibilities.

This Mentored Residency is funded through Dance Ireland's Mentored Residency Support Award.  Connected to this is a four-day workshop with Nacera Belaza from 12-3pm on 4-7 December.
