Our senses allow us to apprehend the world around us. 9 brings them to vivid life through a bold journey of sensation. A work for families. 

Known for its eloquent dance, Montreal-based Cas Public is home to an atypical performer. Cai Glover overcame a hearing impairment to become a professional dancer. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn uses his disability as a point of departure for her athletic creation. Perceiving, experiencing, understanding. Our senses allow us to apprehend the world around us. How is it possible to capture the monumental grandeur of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony — one of the masterworks in the classical repertoire — if, like its composer, our hearing is impaired? 9 brings this challenge to vivid life through a bold journey of sensation.
