Kidd Pivot: The You Show

By Julye Huggins
The You Show

Also at Festival TransAmériques this week is Kidd Pivot presenting The You Show June 9th through 11th. The You Show includes four new works by Crystal Pite that, according to the company’s website, derive from “familiar storylines of love, conflict and loss, and the body’s role in providing the illustrative shape of those stories.” These include A Picture of You Falling, The Other You, Das Glashaus and A Picture of You Flying. Pite, who recently won the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award explains the motivation behind the title of the evening: “I want the performance to connect with you and your own body. I invite you to locate yourself in the dancer, to recognize your own dramas translated into fierce physical language, and to see yourself falling and flying as the hero of your own existence. Life, whether you are superhuman or simply human, is epic.” Be sure to check out the Summer Annual 2010 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an item on Crystal Pite’s work.
