Event Details

DanceHouse presents Côté Danse’s X (Dix) on March 22 and 23, 2024, at the Vancouver Playhouse.

Choreographed by Côté Danse, artistic director and principal dancer with The National Ballet of Canada, Guillaume Côté, the work is an exploration of home as a grounding force. Inspired by the mythical Odysseus, X (Dix) makes use of the foundational materials of storytelling, employing archetypal ideas – from the hero’s journey to the role of home – to create new narratives of life’s journey and the elemental forces of leaving and returning.

“We are thrilled to present the DanceHouse debut of Guillaume Côté’s newly formed dance collective, Côté Danse, with this staggeringly beautiful and deeply contemplative work that explores the idea of ‘home’ as a state of mind,” says Jim Smith, artistic and executive director of DanceHouse. “Conceived and choreographed throughout the pandemic, X (Dix) is an invigorating reflection of a singular moment in time when home took on an even greater importance in our lives as our source of stability, safety, and foundational identity. As travellers were summoned home, Odysseus’ mythical longing for home took on even greater resonance.”
