“An extremely thought-provoking piece” – The List, review on Edinburgh International Festival

★★★★ The Stage

How is it possible to capture the monumental grandeur of Symphony No 9—one of the masterworks in the classical repertoire—if, like Beethoven, our hearing is impaired? 9 lived this challenge through a bold journey of sensation.

Known for its eloquent dance, Cas Public now includes 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.

A co-production with Belgian theatre Kopergietery, 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. 9 has been touring around major festivals and theatres throughout the world since its premiere in 2016.
