Kidd Pivot presents the full-length work The Tempest Replica in its Canadian premiere. Based on motifs from Shakespeare’s epic play, award-winning Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite stages a game of revenge and forgiveness, reality and imagination in this magical narrative retelling. A theatrical sensibility complements the mastery of the dancers – their fluidity heightening the dramatic articulation of the plot. Swathed in white light, shadows abounding, with music composed by longtime collaborator Owen Belton and a film montage by Jamie Nesbitt, Pite’s latest work is a startling innovation.

BONUS! POST PERFORMANCE CHAT: Join Crystal Pite after the show on Friday, Sept. 28th for a special post-performance chat to share your experience of the performance. The chat will take place in the theatre right after the show.

“There are few choreographers of Pite's generation who can create such a world of invention with just seven dancers and an empty stage.”
