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 teams up with three exceptional dancers from the National Ballet of Canada and the Royal Ballet Flanders, Belgium. 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!
