Up coming shows
DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL
(Kidd Pivot & Electric Company Theatre)
Two of Canada’s most adventurous artists, Olivier Award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite and playwright/performer Jonathon Young, join forces in this astonishing and critically acclaimed hybrid of theatre and dance.
Betroffenheit is a state of shock and bewilderment that encompasses you in the wake of a disaster. Here, a crisis-management team keeps your emergency alive, and a steady supply of “The Show” provides all the distraction, escape and pleasure you crave.
Pite’s boldly original choreography meets Young’s compelling script in this major new production. Rich in spectacle, Betroffenheit touches on universal themes of loss, trauma, addiction and recovery. Featuring six extraordinary performers and an A-team of artistic collaborators, this innovative piece is as thrilling as it is moving. A powerful testament to the transformative power of art.
This performance contains strobe-like effects, non-toxic theatrical haze, and coarse language
