The newest work by Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young, creators of the international sensation, Betroffenheit. Eight dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors in a plot that reinvests theatrical devices with anarchic absurdity, and Pite’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.
