About the Show/Event
Information for The Wind at Royal Opera House, West End (Dance or ballet). In rural Texas, a young woman's sanity unravels in the grip of the ever-raging wind. Arthur Pita has forged a distinctive career in British dance; his disquieting narrative works tell dark and strange stories through a vivid, visceral language of movement. His award-winning adaptation of Kafka's Metamorphosis in 2011 for the Linbury Studio Theatre was a triumph. As well as creating works for his own company Pita has been commissioned by companies and figures from Dance East to Natalia Osipova - creating a body of work whose strangeness and imaginativeness have earned Pita the nickname 'the David Lynch of dance'.
