KIDD PIVOT - CRYSTAL PITE, JONATHON YOUNG
A highly anticipated new work by acclaimed choreographer Crystal Pite and Kidd Pivot’s playwright in residence, Jonathon Young, following the massive success of Revisor. A brilliantly orchestrated, highly energetic and inventive hybrid of dance and theatre.
Crystal Pite is a multi-talented phenomenon. Described by the British newspaper The Guardian as “a 21st-century dance genius,” she has captivated Paris audiences with two ballet events in recent years, not to mention her projects with Nederlands Dans Theater, the Royal Ballet in London and many others. Pite and Young assemble eight magnificent performers in a new work that explores our need to congregate and belong. In a gathering place that doubles as community hall and mythic realm, we witness the joys and dangers of devoted like-mindedness, and the pain of exile. Fuelling Kidd Pivot’s work is a fascination with story, the embodiment of meaning, and the role of language as an animating force. A breathtaking work, moving and inspiring.
