As the global pandemic shrank the world, and the concept of home became a site of comfort, stability and foundational identity, the story of Odysseus took on even greater resonance.
Taking inspiration from Homer’s mythic poem, five dancers delve deeply into the idea of an inner compass, not only as a means of navigation, but also as a tool of connection to the elemental forces of the earth. Accompanied by the sculptural sounds of American experimental band Son Lux, X (Dix) charts a course into the unknown, as well as the challenges of finding your way home again.
Hailed as “one of the finest male dancers in the world” by The London Times, Guillaume Côté brings a depth of knowledge and interpretation to the creation of his own work creating choreography of singular and staggering beauty. Côté Danse’s mythic new work X (Dix) makes remarkable 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 leaving and return.
