Contemporary dance / Artistic Director / Choreographer
CAS PUBLIC - HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
When she founded CAS PUBLIC in 1989, Hélène Blackburn was already a leader among the new generation of contemporary dance artists. Thus, while CAS PUBLIC is the immediate result of sustained efforts on the part of its founder, the company, above all, is meant to be nerve centre for artists gravitating around a common research process in contemporary dance. The company name itself reflects the choreographer\'s deeply-held convictions regarding collective work and the artist\'s role in society: Rather than choose an eponymous name, Hélène Blackburn sought to distance herself from the myth of the omniscient choreographer.
