Under the direction of internationally renowned Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM has been resident company at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt since 2010. The residency is made possible by Kulturfonds Frankfurt Rhine-Main.
Integrating movement, original music, text, and rich visual design, Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM’s performance work is assembled with recklessness and rigour, balancing sharp exactitude with irreverence and risk. Kidd Pivot’s distinct choreographic language – a breadth of movement fusing classical elements and the complexity and freedom of structured improvisation – is marked by a strong theatrical sensibility and a keen sense of wit and invention.
Crystal Pite has collaborated with celebrated dance artists, theatre companies and filmmakers in Canada, Europe, and the United States. Since 2002 Crystal Pite has created and performed under the banner of her own company. Her work and her company have been recognized with numerous awards and commissions. Kidd Pivot tours extensively around the world with productions that include The Tempest Replica (2011), The You Show (2010), Dark Matters (2009), Lost Action (2006), Uncollected Work (2002) and Double Story (2004), created with Richard Siegal. Kidd Pivot is the recipient of the 2006 Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award.
