Take a transformative journey of the senses with the preeminent Quebecois dance company Cas Public, returning to Lincoln Center after their sold-out production of Gold in 2015. 9 begins with dancer Cai Glover gently taking off his hearing aid. With choreography inspired by sign language and ballet, he and four other dancers enter the world of Beethoven’s monumental Ninth Symphony and its famous Ode to Joy. Awe-inspiring and uplifting, 9 pushes back the boundaries of silence, transcends our preconceived notions of otherness, and transforms bodies into language.
