Kidd Pivot / Crystal Pite & Jonathon Young

When choreographer Crystal Pite and theatre-maker Jonathon Young work together, this results in theatrical fireworks that keep shimmering for a long time. After Betroffenheit during Julidans 2017 in Amsterdam, they're now taking on vintage political comedy as a starting point.

Dance and theatre in exuberant performance about greed and corruption.

In De Revisor (1836) the Russian writer Nikolay Gogol hid his social criticism in a classic 'comedy of mistakes' about greed and corruption. Even Czar Nicolas I is said to have laughed at it. On the basis of this political comedy, Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young are taking a look at the weaknesses in our society. It's a performance as exuberant as it is astute, in which dance and theatre go hand in hand.

The Canadian Crystal Pite is one of the great stars of today's dance scene. She regularly works with Nederlands Dans Theater. When she collaborates with her fellow countryman, Jonathon Young, it provides 'a stunning demonstration of what can happen when life becomes art', in the words of the British newspaper The Globe and Mail, the impressive Betroffenheit was good enough for an Olivier Award, the highest award in British theatre.

“Music is the space between the notes,” Debussy wrote. That is the starting point for this dialogue between classical music and contemporary dance. Because between the notes there is space for the imagination.
