The first company to tread the boards of the Agora stage this fall, Cas Public will be presenting a sort of exhilarating mass, an extraordinary ode to creation. This new piece, co-created by Hélène Blackburn and Pierre Lecours, combines the company dancers with several arts personalities such as Alexandre Désilets, Simon-Xavier Lefebvre, Sylvie Moreau, and Daniel Soulières. True as ever to a penchant for high-flying, energetic choreography, the company presents original encounters at the very limit of the unlikely – a dance master with a student, a singer who meets a dancer, an actress who transcends her partner’s movements. Consisting of some fifteen duos, with this piece Cas Public has achieved a veritable tour de force, cultivating the emblematic qualities of each individual in a composition of collective energy. Flitting between confrontation and encounter, each duo highlights a facet of this hybrid, all-out spectacle in a mosaic of duos framed by spare lighting and set design, artfully melding the bold, the spectacular and vibrant physical performances.
