The boundaries between reality and myth crumble in Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young’s major new dance work.

Combining Arthurian cosplay and emotive contemporary dance, Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young present their major new dance work, following their Olivier Award-winning piece Revisor.

Set in a crumbling community hall, a group of medieval re-enactors gather for their Annual General Meeting. However, things are not looking good. Membership has taken a nosedive, debts are creeping up and the group has become divided into opposing factions. Unless something drastic happens, the re-enactment society will be shut down forever. But as the meeting progresses, the lines blur between past and present, reality and myth. Ancient forces have woken and it becomes increasingly clear that the quest to save their society from dissolution is a matter of life and death.

Kidd Pivot’s award-winning productions seamlessly blend dance and theatre. Jonathon Young’s recorded text is married with Crystal Pite’s razor-sharp, witty choreography to create a genre-defying piece woven together by two masterful storytellers.

If those two geniuses want to integrate modern dance with King Arthur cosplay, the world will line up to see it
