About Lost Action
Crystal Pite, one of the most innovative and 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 captivating series of solos, duets and ensemble moments, which merge fluid movement with violent gestures.
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-time collaborator Owen Belton.
A former dancer with William Forsythe’s Ballett 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 Montréal.
