DanceHouse presents Kidd Pivot: Revisor
From choreographer Crystal Pite and writer/director Jonathon Young, the creators of the internationally acclaimed Betroffenheit (winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production) comes Revisor, a new dance/theatre hybrid that mixes classic farce and the forces of radical change into a fizzing concoction that confounds expectations and inverts the official order.
Taking inspiration from the classical tropes of satire and subversion – apparatchik politicking, mistaken identity, trash the fourth-wall observances – eight dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors in a plot that reinvests theatrical devices with anarchic absurdity and Pites’s wildly inventive choreography.
As Story and dance cascade into a final conflagration of human failing and moral bankruptcy, Revisor uses the mutable language of conflict and comedy to examine the relationship between people and politics, with eviscerating wit and bold physicality.
