A Kidd Pivot Production, created by Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young

Superstar choreographer Crystal Pite dispatches her groundbreaking Kidd Pivot dancers to Aotearoa for this sensational hybrid of contemporary theatre and dance.

Satirising greed and corruption through the twin geniuses of playwright Jonathon Young’s crackling text and Pite’s stunning choreography, Revisor is a dance-theatre phenomenon. Sold out in Canada and London before its world tour was postponed in 2020, we’re thrilled to have lured this outstanding dance work to Tāmaki Makaurau for a one-off season.

Taking inspiration from a classic Nikolai Gogol political farce, Revisor is a blazingly modern show that speaks to the madness that unfolds in places beset with abuses of power. Across a startling mix of action, comedy, pantomime and pre-recorded dialogue – full-body lip synched by eight incredible dancers in high theatrical mode – this is one of Pite’s most electric and in-demand works, and the embodiment of the “detailed and beautiful but also brave and brutal” style that has compelled The New York Times to label her “one of the most talented and intriguing choreographers working today.”
