Revisor (digital)

The critically acclaimed Revisor takes to the screen.

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).
