National Ballet of Canada - The Dream and Being and Nothingness

Closed November 25, 2018

Cote is able to evoke something of the horror and monotony of existence that is at the crux of Sartre's work. I was moved by the evocation of morning light and the subtle anticipation of loss in the bedroom duet, danced beautifully by corps members

Why See National Ballet of Canada - The Dream and Being and Nothingness?

BalletDance & Ballet

A Program of Breathtaking Ballet

Settle in for an evening of kinetic magic, whimsy and storytelling during the National Ballet of Canada's resplendent program of Frederick Ashton's 'The Dream' and Guillaume Cote's 'Being and Nothingness'. Set to the music of early romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn, Ashton's inventive choreography captures the comic confusion and captivating cavorting of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, climaxing in a stunning pas de deux between the wilful and wild Oberon and Titania.

Evolving his career as one of the company's finest principal dancers to the role of a Choreographic Associate, Cote first debuted 'Being and Nothingness' in 2015 to rave reviews. Named after a Jean Paul-Satre essay, the refreshing piece consists of seven narrative vignettes set to the piano works of Philip Glass and explores the concepts of freedom, the self and the meaning of existence with a breathtakingly physical and emotionally expressive style.
