About

Cas Public of Canada
GOLD
Choreography by Hélène Blackburn and Pierre Lecours
With Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations, recorded by Glenn Gould
 
Five bow-tied dancers who tap, spin, and tumble. Balls that bounce, zip, and zing at lightning speed. Bright red chairs that slide in and out of the light. And pesky little bugs that scurry under foot. Renowned for its trademark playful approach, Canada's Cas Public dance ensemble uses everyday sounds and objects in GOLD to explore the joy, humor, and mischief of childhood--all performed to Canadian pianist Glenn Gould's famous recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations. Mixing whimsical movement with gliding video panels, dynamic lighting effects, and percussive clapping and stomping, GOLD becomes a frolicsome hide-and-seek celebration of the spirit of youth. Says Montreal's La Presse: Cas Public "has a finely balanced sense of fun and an ability to convey sophisticated emotions in ways that both young and older can understand."
 
For age 8 and up.

Performance Timing: 50 minutes
