X (Dix) connects to the myth of Odysseus, about journeying far but always desiring to return home. The piece explores the notion of the “inner compass” and the idea that “home” may be a state of mind. Symbol of completeness, finality and perfection, the number ten (dix) is associated with the beginning of the cycle of life and the inevitable transformations that this entails. X (Dix) was conceived during the pandemic – a transformative time when travellers were summoned home, and when the very concept of what we call home gained new importance.
Five performers share a minimalist stage setting amplified by the surging and sculptural sounds of American experimental band Son Lux.
Informed by his classical ballet vocabulary, Côté’s choreography contours space with resonant geometries and fervent human connections. Contemporary lines and forms with a sleek edge and refined athleticism give his work a bracing quality.
