Cas Public
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.

Suitable for age 7+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: 9 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
