A cutting-edge new dance work created by Guillaume Côté, from an original story by Royce Vavrek.

From dancer-choreographer Guillaume Cote (Frame by Frame, The Little Prince) and librettist Royce Vavrek (Angel’s Bone, 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Music) comes a dynamic work of contemporary dance infused with theatre and technology. Featuring the music of Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson, “Crypto” is a groundbreaking work about forced displacement and the human need to control and transform beauty in wholly unnatural ways. Côté and Vavrek create a dynamic and complex narrative that allows us to dive into the vast and varied musical landscape of the work, performed by a stellar cast of artists and dancers : Guillaume Côté, Matt Foley, Greta Hodgkinson and Drew Jacoby. Thomas Payette and Mylène Chabrol of Hub Studio will create the sets and projection design and Etienne Boucher and Jean-François Piché will create the lighting design. 

An Anymotion Production.
