Théâtre Maisonneuve - Place des Arts Book

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 the beauty and our obstinate need to control and transform it. Fascinated by avant-garde artistic forms, the choreographer / performer teams up with three exceptional dancers.

Featuring a rich musical landscape by Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson and stunning visual effects by Montreal multimedia company Hub Studio, “Crypto” is the result of a collaborative approach that reveals the original and surprising signature of a creator to be discovered!
