A group of Canada’s finest artists (set designer, composer, sound artists, wardrobe) join Kidd Pivot’s company of international dancers and celebrated actor Jonathon Young (Electric Company Theatre) to tell a very personal story about living through disaster: an innovative, boundary-stretching hybrid of theatre and dance.

★★★★ Betroffenheit “is rare and staggering... is a harrowing representation of trauma and suffering – but it’s also a stunning testament to what can be made when life undergoes a pretty strange and irreducible process – when it’s turned into art.
