Cyprus : 9

Α dance performance, choreographed by Canadian choreographer Hélène Blackburn, which pushes back the limits of silence to rise above difference and transform the body into language.

Perceiving, experiencing, understanding. Our senses allow us to apprehend the world around us. This sine qua non condition is like a window onto what lies outside of us; without it things elude us in part. How is it possible to capture the monumental grandeur of the 9th symphony — one of the masterworks in the classical repertoire — if, like Beethoven, our hearing is impaired?

Canadian choreographer Hélène Blackburn has taken the unusual step of using the hearing impairment of one of her dancers as a point of departure for her new creation, using the 9th Symphony of the completely deaf composer as her backdrop. The piece, a coproduction with Kopergietery, is sure to appeal to all generations by pushing back the limits of silence to rise above difference and transform the body into language.
