In anticipation of International Dance Day on April 29, Montréal libraries are honouring dance throughout the month of April. The Marc-Favreau Library in Montréal’s Rosemont district invited the dancers of Cas Public, a Québec dance company founded by Hélène Blackburn, to dish on what books, songs and films inspire them – while in the studio and on tour. The video project was set in motion by Regroupement québécois de la danse as a means to give dancers a voice outside of performance.

The choreography seen in the video is excerpts from Symphonie dramatique by Hélène Blackburn, in collaboration with Pierre Lecours and the dancers of Cas Public, and Variation S, also by Blackburn. The company is currently on tour in France.
