10 Teenage Girls.... bright eyes, breathing the same air, blood pumping together...dancing their hearts out. This Thumping Heart chases through the expectations, anxieties and vulnerabilities of what it is to be a young woman. The dramas of the most potent of life stages distilled into powerful physicality. Created by the dancers together with choreographer Emma Martin, featuring Carlow Youth Orchestra and in association with Carlow Regional Youth Services.

I went out in the world afraid / All the other people were dancing /The sun glared, and I did not know / My face, or my hands, or whom to turn to /I wish the sky would move as I move.(Girl’s Song, Alicia Ostriker)
