Catherine Young’s ULTIMA THULE in Cork and Dublin this April

Catherine Young’s ULTIMA THULE in Cork and Dublin this April

Catherine Young Dance returns to Cork and Dublin this April following her critically-acclaimed work Woman Stood Regardless in 2014. Ultima Thule, inspired by Carl Jung’s seminal work Liber Novus (The Red Book), presents a voyage of discovery into the psyche, exploring the road we take through life in search of soul.

A highly physical piece with an all female cast of international performers and set to live percussion and voice, Ultima Thule digs deep to find out what connects us all – so that we can guide each other home.

Choreographer Catherine Young creates thoughtful, engaging work, which aims to inspire and connect with the viewer. Her constant questioning of life and humanity is evident throughout the work – both the struggle and the beauty. 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. Ultima Thule, through highly physical dance set to spectacular live percussion and voice, continues that evolution – and is not to be missed.

“I am weary, my soul, my wandering has lasted too long, my search for myself outside of myself.”
Carl Jung
