From the team that brought you the ground-breaking, award-winning Betroffenheit and Revisor comes Kidd Pivot's latest creation, a dance-theatre hybrid that promises to deliver the company's trademark wit and ingenuity.
Co-creators Crystal Pite (Kidd Pivot) and Jonathon Young (Electric Company Theatre) bring together eight superb performers in a new work that explores our need for a sense of togetherness and belonging. In a setting somewhere between a community hall and a mythical kingdom, we witness the joys and pitfalls of devoted like-mindedness and the pain of exile.
Kidd Pivot's fascination with narrative and the role of language as a vital force continually informs the company’s work.
Crystal Pite's bold and original vision has earned her international acclaim and inspired a generation of dance artists. In 2002, she founded Kidd Pivot and made it her mission to translate universal issues into works of art that connect to deep and essential parts of our humanity. More than 50 creations later, Crystal continues her commitment to refine the universal language of dance.
This performance includes English only dialogue that is integral to the work's narrative.
