Danse Danse presents

Côté Danse – Crypto

In Crypto, Guillaume Côté, Principal Dancer and Choreographic Associate of The National Ballet of Canada, joins forces with an impressive group of artistic colleagues. His new work expresses a bold artistic vision. A modern fable performed by four exceptional dancers.

Theatre, music, technology, and gestures tinged with classicism intertwine in this contemporary choreographic narrative. Inspired by a story written by the librettist Royce Vavrek, Guillaume Côté imagines a work that invites a reflection on beauty and our obstinate need to control and transform it. Fascinated by avant-garde artistic forms, the choreographer / performer Guillaume Côté teams up with three exceptional dancers. Featuring a rich musical landscape by Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson and stunning visual effects by Montreal multimedia company Mirari, Crypto is the result of a collaborative approach that reveals the original and surprising signature of a creator to be discovered!

Guillaume Côté is a native of Lac-Saint-Jean, Québec. He studied at Canada’s National Ballet School and joined The National Ballet of Canada in 1999. He quickly rose through the ranks and was promoted to Principal Dancer in 2004.
