Cas Public and Kopergietery
Title of Performance: 9
Country: Canada and Belgium
Perceiving, experiencing, understanding– our senses allow us to apprehend the world around us. But how is it possible to capture the monumental grandeur of the 9th symphony if, like Beethoven, our hearing is impaired? 9 incarnates this challenge through a bold journey of sensation.
Known for its eloquent dance, Cas Public now houses performer, Cai Glover, who overcame a hearing impairment to become a professional dancer. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn uses this as a point of departure for her new creation. 9 pushes back the limits of silence to rise above difference and transform the body into language.
