If You Go Down To The Woods Today, be prepared to face fears ticklish and tiny, big and mighty. Cas Public, from Montreal, Canada, subtly blends verbal and body language in a suite of six choreographic tableaus based on childhood fears: fear of the night, fear of growing up, fear of being different, imaginary fear, warranted fear and being afraid just for the sheer pleasure of it. Five striking dancers sweep through a complex whirlwind of unpredictable, high-velocity choreography on a stage dappled with rich lighting and strewn with colorful leaves. In this critically acclaimed work, choreographer Helene Blackburn pulls fear from the shadows and conquers it with magnificent, mercurial movement.
