Choreographer/director Crystal Pite and playwright/actor Jonathon Young have reinvented dance theatre, and gained the unanimous admiration of both critics and the general public. Following their powerfully moving and highly successful piece Betroffenheit, this next collaboration is a contemporary adaptation of an archetypal comic plot that serves as the basis for stunning choreography.

Featuring eight dancers in Pite’s exquisite gestural style, Revisor transcends parody to tackle themes of corruption and deception with razor-sharp wit and unsurpassed visual, movement and sonic invention.

Integrating movement, original music, text, and rich visual design, Kidd Pivot’s performance work is assembled with recklessness and rigour, balancing sharp exactitude with irreverence and risk. Under the direction of internationally renowned Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, the company’s distinct choreographic language – a breadth of movement fusing classical elements and the complexity and freedom of structured improvisation – is marked by a strong theatrical sensibility and a keen sense of wit and invention.
