Cas Public now houses an atypical performer, Cai Glover, who overcame a hearing impairment to become a professional dancer. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn has taken the unusual step of using his disability as a point of departure for her new creation. Perceiving, experiencing, understanding. Our senses allow us to apprehend the world around us. This sine qua non condition is like a window into what lies outside of us; without it things elude us in part. How is it possible to capture the monumental grandeur of the 9th symphony – one of the masterworks in the classical repertoire – if, like Beethoven, our hearing is impaired? 9 incarnates this challenge through a journey of sensation. In coproduction with Kopergietery, the work attemps to push back the limits of silence to rise above difference and transform the body into language.
