★★★★ “Betroffenheit is a stunning testament to what can happen when life turns into art.” Globe and Mail

A Kidd Pivot/Electric Company Theatre co-production

One of the world’s best-reviewed dance theatre performances of the past decade, Betroffenheit is a virtuosic gift to the world – a liminal and visceral expression of sorrow that is nevertheless filled with humour, hope, and love. What happens when we experience a loss so deep and distressing we lose the ability to give it words?

This performance contains strobe-like effects, non-toxic theatrical haze, and coarse language.

Co-producers: PANAMANIA Arts and Culture Program of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, Sadler’s Wells (London), Canada’s National Arts Centre, the Banff Centre, the CanDance Network, Canadian Stage (Toronto), Agora de la danse (Montréal), Brian Webb Dance Company (Edmonton), and Dance Victoria (Victoria).

Duration

Performance is approximately 2 hours including intermission.
