Integrating movement, original music, text, and rich visual design, Kidd Pivot’s performance work is assembled with recklessness and rigor, balancing sharp exactitude with irreverence and risk. A two-part riff on Shakespeare's play, the essential plot lines are sketched in a faceless white environment; then flesh and blood players rip open the story and dance out the characters in full color.
”One of those rare and wonderful performances that not only delivers an exceptional evening of dance and theater but also offers enough intellectual provocation to fuel spirited dialogue long after the show ends.” – The Star Tribune
