The Tempest Replica - T258024226UK Premiere. For its first visit to Sadler's Wells since debuting in 2009, Pite's Kidd Pivot company presents its latest work, The Tempest Replica. Based on motifs from Shakespeare's The Tempest, Pite stages a game of revenge and forgiveness; reality and imagination, exploring these themes in two contexts. Firstly, represented as an on-stage storyboard, with the plot points of the narrative delivered minimally through the gestures and postures of faceless chalk-white figures inside a maquette-like space. Secondly, the narrative is explored through a series of portraits - the characters and relationships manifested through fierce physical language and emotion, to produce a work of rare insight and innovation. Running time: 1hr 25mins (no interval)

Lost Action - T01646505125UK Premiere. Crystal Pite, one of the most exciting choreographers working in Canada today, brings her company Kidd Pivot to the UK for the very first time with the award-winning Lost Action. Fuelled by the outstanding abilities of seven performers (including Crystal Pite herself), Lost Action explores themes of conflict and loss in a compelling series of solos, duets and ensemble moments. A thrilling analysis of dance and the body becomes a metaphor for life and loss in this emotionally gripping work, which is set to a diverse soundtrack by long-term collaborator Owen Belton. A former dancer with William Forsythe’s Ballet Frankfurt, Crystal Pite was the youngest person ever to receive the Clifford E. Lee Choreographic Award in 1995 and was formerly choreographer-in-residence at Les Ballets Jazz de MontréalChoreographer Crystal Pite.
