Betroffenheit describes a state of shock and trauma so all-encompassing no words can do it justice. Through a powerful performance that combines dance and theatre, choreographer Crystal Pite and writer and performer Jonathon Young bring the audience on a rollercoaster ride of loss, addiction, and recovery.
Crystal and her company, Kidd Pivot, were at Banff Centre in 2015 creating and refining Betroffenheit, co-created with Jonathon Young's Electric Company Theatre. The show premieres July 23, 2015 at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.
