Dance Contemporary Cross-disciplinary
“The Vancouver-based choreographer opens up  [contemporary dance] to the uninitiated with her irreverent, dizzying originality...” Marsha Lederman, The Globe and Mail, 2016

NAC Co-production

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.

Performance is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with no intermission.
