 and Jonathon Young, joint creators behind The Guardian’s Best Dance Show of the 21st Century and the Olivier Award-winning Betroffenheit, return to . For their new dance-theatre collaboration,  Associate Artist  and writer and performer Jonathon Young, together with Pite’s company , turn their brilliant minds to the comic play The Inspector General (known as ‘Revizor’ in Russia).

Taking Nikolai Gogol’s 1836 farce as a starting point, Revisor knits Jonathon Young’s text, recorded by leading Canadian actors, with Crystal Pite’s “gripping blend of body language and stylised movement” (The Independent) performed by eight dancers in this satirical tale of political corruption.

As the artistic director of Vancouver-based , she displays her exceptional talent for combining dance, visual arts and theatre to create dazzling productions, and the company’s reputation just keeps on growing. Revisor is her third joint project with theatre artist Jonathon Young. The creators revise an archetypal comic plot to serve as the basis for choreography in a true hybrid of contemporary dance and theatre. In Revisor, eight dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors, exploring conflict, comedy and corruption in the potent relationship between language and the body. Pite/Young reinvent dance/theatre with masterful skill. A perceptive critique of our society and its foibles, Revisor delivers a powerful narrative in movement.
