A dance company will blend dance, human connection, and emotion as it transforms a piece of ancient Greek literature into a performance when it comes to a Chilliwack stage.

Côté Danse will bring X (Dix) – their interpretation of Homer’s Odyssey – to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 25.

The performance is a testament to the collective artistry and vision of Côté Danse’s dancers and creative team. Through a captivating fusion of contemporary dance, theatrical storytelling, and immersive visuals, X (Dix) explores themes of human connection, resilience, and the transformative power of movement.

X (Dix) draws inspiration from the legendary tale of Odysseus, the story of a man who takes a long trip and has only one aim, to return to his beloved homeland and his family. This story sits at the heart of this performance, creating a show that is about the adventure into the unknown and the challenges of finding one’s way back home.

Somewhere between north, south, east and west one begins to see through relationships, experiences, and personal growth that “home” may only be a state of mind rather than a physical place.

Côté Danse’s performance of X (Dix) is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32 with discounts for those in the Patron Programs, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
