Dance performance for children, to Beethoven's masterpiece

In 9, Beethoven's masterly Ninth Symphony is central: an exceptional musical masterpiece that Beethoven only completed after he had gone completely deaf. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn takes an atypical dancer as her starting point: Cai Glover. Cai is also deaf. How do you grasp a musical masterpiece when you can’t hear it? How do you experience or understand the world when one of your senses fails?
