STG Presents Kidd Pivot and Electric Company Theatre - Betroffenheit at The Moore Theatre on March 23 & 24, 2018. Presented in association with On the Boards.
A state of shock and bewilderment encompasses you in the wake of a disaster. It is a timeless, liminal space where you return again and again even as you struggle to gain and maintain distance, and where you keep responding to the disaster long after it has subsided. 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” is available for all 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. This creation by two of Canada’s most celebrated companies is an innovative, boundary-stretching hybrid of theatre and dance.
Integrating movement, original music, text, and rich visual design, KIDD PIVOT’S performance work is assembled with recklessness and rigour, balancing sharp exactitude with irreverence and risk. Under the direction of internationally renowned Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, the company’s distinct choreographic language – a breadth of movement fusing classical elements and the complexity and freedom of structured improvisation – is marked by a strong theatrical sensibility and a keen sense of wit and invention.
KIDD PIVOT tours extensively around the world with productions that include The Tempest Replica (2011), The You Show (2010), Dark Matters (2009), Lost Action (2006), and Double Story (2004), created with Richard Siegal. Kidd Pivot received the 2006 Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award, and was resident company at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, with the support of Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain, in Frankfurt, Germany from 2010 to 2012.
ELECTRIC COMPANY THEATRE is one of Canada's leading creators of live theatre, rich in spectacle and adventurous in form, challenging theatrical conventions while preserving a strong sense of story. The company was originally formed as a collective in 1996 by Siminovitch Prize-winning director Kim Collier, David Hudgins, Jonathon Young and Governor General’s Award-winning writer Kevin Kerr, who met while training at Studio 58 in Vancouver.
ELECTRIC COMPANY THEATRE has created over 20 original productions including the film/theatre hybrid Tear the Curtain! (Arts Club Theatre) a live-cinematic adaptation of Jena Paul Sartre’s No Exit (American Conservatory Theatre), Studies in Motion (Canadian Stage) and Brilliant! (Edinburgh Fringe, San Jose Stage). In 2005 the company wrote and directed The Score – a feature film for CBC Television that played festivals in Canada, USA, Mexico, Taipei and Tokyo. The company has received numerous industry awards across Canada including the first Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award for Theatre (2001). In 2009 Electric Company co-founded Progress Lab 1422, a 6,000 sq ft theatre creation space in Vancouver, with Rumble Theatre, Neworld Theatre and Boca del Lupo.
KIDD PIVOT: IMPROVISATION CLASS
Thursday, March 22, 2018
6:00 - 7:30 pm
Velocity Dance Center (1621 12th Ave, Seattle)
$15.00: pre-registration required!
Kidd Pivot's improvisation class focuses on discovering and revealing articulations and timings in the body. The class begins with a warm-up as participants articulate deeply through the body in stages, starting from the spine and working towards the extremities. Participants work at their own pace, exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The class is explorative and non-performative: it’s focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience. This workshop is intended for advanced level dancers and actors. Click here to register!
