Home-grown spectacular Betroffenheit by Kidd Pivot and Electric Company Theatre returns to the DanceHouse stage for four sold-out performances in March 2018.
Betroffenheit – a creative collaboration between Kidd Pivot Artistic Director and choreographer Crystal Pite and Electric Company Theatre Co-Artistic Director Jonathon Young – immerses the audience in a world of shock and bewilderment in the wake of a disaster. You find yourself in this timeless, liminal space again and again, long after the disaster has subsided, as you struggle to gain and maintain distance. Here, a crisis-management team is keeping your emergency situation alive and present, a trusted voice is urging you to come to terms with the past, and a steady supply of “The Show” provides the distraction, escape, and pleasure you crave. In one sense, you’re the survivor and this is your refuge. In another, you’re the disaster waiting to happen.
Since its world premiere in July 2015, Betroffenheit has gone on to win numerous awards including the Georgia Straight Critic’s Choice Innovation Award at the Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards (2016), Outstanding Dance Production – Dora Mavor Moore Awards (2016), Outstanding Performance in Modern Dance: Jonathon Young – Critic’s Circle National Dance Awards (2016), and an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production (2017).
Two premium tickets to DanceHouse’s presentation of Betroffeneheit at the Vancouver Playhouse, for Friday, March 16 at 8 p.m.
