"An Evening with Cystal Pite" Nederlands Dans Theater March 3 and 5th at Digiplex Theaters

 March 3 and 5  

Audiences are treated to a stunning performance from a rising star in the dance world, Crystal Pite, the Vancouver based performer and choreographer whose fluid, organic and poetic style shines in this rich innovative dance performance. 

A master storyteller, Pite allows the audience to interpret its own story line from her ballet, putting viewers in the dancers’ shoes as they contemplate love, loss and conflict translated through intense dance movements.

Through the integration of powerful movement, music and rich visual design, Pite’s work prompts the audience to reflect upon their own lives.  Her innovative dance approach is renowned for integrating thrilling and highly structured movements into the music, text and rich visual design. 

Both of the works by Crystal Pite  and the Nederlands Dans Theater deal in abstract themes and are centered on the theme of the Frontier, the border between reality and the unknown.

"An Evening with Crystal Pite"
This engaging performance features the stunning intensity of dancers’ hyper articulated bodies attached to one another, as they move with astonishing ease. The first half of the performance looks inward, towards the frontiers of what we know about the human mind.

The second ballet looks outward to the border of the universe and explores the dark and mysterious forces that form our world. The precise and sinewy movements of the dancers make them appear to be suspended by gravity, dangling between what we know and do not know about the mind and the universe. 

Crystal Pite’s signature work fuses this distinct and complex choreography with classical elements for a truly unique performance.  Presenting life as an epic tale, Pite strives to reflect the body’s role in providing the illustrative shape of love, conflict and loss in this ballet.

Join us at Digiplex Theaters for the Nederlands Dans Theater “A Evening with Crystal Pite” on March 3 and 5th.
