Kidd Pivot: Revisor
March 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
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.
Jonathon Young and Crystal Pite revise an archetypal comic plot to serve as the basis for choreography in a true hybrid of contemporary theatre and dance. In Revisor, eight Kidd Pivot dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors, exploring conflict, comedy and corruption in the potent relationship between language and the body. From the creators of the internationally acclaimed Betroffenheit (winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production).
“Choreographically, it’s riveting, both for the inventive articulation of individual bodies and for the fine-tuned dynamics of the ensemble, as responsive as conversation itself.” – The Guardian
“It’s a strange, fascinating trip no matter how you approach it—the kind where the electricity hangs in the air long after the curtain call.” – The Georgia Straight
