Witness a captivating hybrid of contemporary dance and theatre in this spectacular production by award-winning collaborators Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young.

In Revisor, Pite and Young take on an archetypal comic plot inspired by a bizarre theatrical interpretation of Nikolai Gogol's novel, The Government Inspector. Driven by characters of mixed motives, the narrative satirises the absurdity of power and bureaucracy. With the exceptional dancers from Kidd Pivot embodying the recorded dialogue of some of Canada's finest actors, the work explores conflict, comedy and corruption in the compelling relationship between language and the body.

Revisor was named best new dance production by the Olivier Awards in 2022 and now arrives in Singapore for its Asian premiere.

This production is presented as part of da:ns focus – Body Language, a weekend of programmes that examines the interplay between dance, the body, text and speech.
