Signed by Canadian star choreographer Crystal Pite and actor Jonathon Young, with outstanding performances by Kidd Pivot dancers, and with Gogol’s unique humour: Revisor is brought to your screens as part of the festival!
An associate artist at Sadler’s Wells NDT and Canada National Arts Center, well known to festivalgoers and highly admired for her choreography, Pite fuses dance and theatre in an unforgettable project with co-creator writer and actor Young. Revisor embodies the conflict, comedy, and corruption in Gogol’s The Government Inspector with the recorded dialogue/voices of Canada’s best actors and the strong relationship between language and body. Recorded in March 2020, Kidd Pivot’s incredible dancers lip-sync with the recorded words of the actors on stage accompanied by a soundtrack, exposing Pite’s creative power with an extremely impressive sense of humor. Described in the Vancouver Sun as ‘a stunning, unforgettable performance…every element in this remarkable piece contributes to its dynamic synthesis of movement, voice and text, light, sound, set and the imaginative vision of its creators….’, Revisor exceeds all expectations and you’ll find yourself wanting to watch it again.
