A unique collaboration between Guillaume Côté, charismatic Principal Dancer and Choreographic Associate with The National Ballet of Canada, and Robert Lepage, Artistic Director of Ex Machina, theater icon and exceptional Shakespearean director.

After co-creating Frame by Frame in 2018 for the National Ballet of Canada, these two distinguished artists have created Hamlet, a mythical play whose hero has captivated and moved audiences since its origination. Lepage and Côté take up the challenge of approaching the work solely through dance, supported by a cast of nine hand-picked performers from Côté Danse, the music of John Gzowski, and an innovative set design. A unique chance to see the evolution of this work and witness the creative process of these two great Quebec artists!

Hamlet is a coproduction of Côté Danse, Ex Machina and Dvoretsky Productions.
