Artistic Direction: Hélène Blackburn & Johan de Smet
Known for its eloquent dance, Cas Public now houses an atypical performer, Cai Glover, who overcame a hearing impairment to become a professional dancer. Hélène Blackburn has taken the unusual step of using his disability as a point of departure for her new creation. 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. The work is sure to appeal to all generations by pushing back the limits of silence to rise above difference and transform the body into language. Coproduction between: Cas Public & Kopergietery Choreography: Hélène Blackburn Dramaturgy: Johan De Smet Music: Martin Tétreault Films: Kenneth Michiels Lighthing: Emilie B-Beaulieu & Hélène Blackburn Scenography: Hélène Blackburn Costumes: Michael Slack & Hélène Blackburn
