In their third collaboration, Kidd Pivot’s Artistic Director and choreographer Crystal Pite and Electric Company Theatre Co-Founder Jonathon Young upend the conventions of dance and theatre to create a pan-disciplinary fission. Fuelling Kidd Pivot’s work is a fascination with story and the role of language as an animating force. The different idioms of narrative and movement converge, launching both in entirely new and unexpected directions.
This most recent work assembles eight magnificent performers to explore the human 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.
