In this second episode, Crystal Pite recalls her move to Germany in 1996 to join William Forsythe’s Frankfurt Ballet and the ensuing five years of growth as a performer and choreographer. This is also a time of exposure to the work of Pina Bausch, Wim Vandekeybus, Jan Fabre, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Meg Stuart and Rui Horta. She leaves Germany in 2001 and realizes her dream of forming her own company, Kidd Pivot, where she is free to create and perform her own work.
