From November 2015 to July 2015 Kidd Pivot and Electric Company Theatre will work together to create Betroffenheit (working title), an ambitious, full-length work for six dancers and an actor that merges theatre and dance. The project was conceived through a shared desire between key creative collaborators, choreographer Crystal Pite and writer/performer Jonathon Young, to create a full-length stage work that fuses beautifully integrated design, technology, musicality, physicality, and story. The relatively large scale of the work will make it a unique creation in Vancouver's, and Canada's contemporary dance landscape.
The project will be developed primarily in Vancouver throughout 2014-15. The completed piece will premiere in Toronto July 23 - 25, 2015 as part of PANAMANIA Arts and Culture Program of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games. The work will receive its Vancouver premiere in 2016, and will tour throughout Canada, and to the UK in spring of 2016.
Kidd PIvot is seeking funding support from Vancouver Foundation for the phase of the project beginning in Jan. 2015.
