Five of Northern Ireland's leading theatre and dance companies are set to attend the prestigious International Association of Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) Showcase 2020 in Philadelphia.

Young at Art, Prime Cut Productions, Replay Theatre Company, Maiden Voyage Dance and Cahoots NI will highlight their various productions and network with international touring agents, festival organisers, artists and other theatre professionals, with a view to touring their work globally in the future.

For the first time at IPAY Showcase there will be an all-island focus on Ireland with a 'Cultural Spotlight' presentation on theatre and dance for young audiences across Ireland, supported by Culture Ireland, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and British Council.
