Kidd Pivot took me to Heaven Feb 18, 2011

There are some shows that don't need a story, don't need an explanation, don't need a meaning. Kidd Pivot's Dark Matter was just that show. I was in pure Heaven for well over 75% of this performance. After their incredible tour-de-force Lost Action last year, I was willing to watch literally anything they wanted to show me. What I got was a divine mix of puppetry, explosive modern dance, and the vague storytelling of dreams. I was with it, then I was lost. I got it, then I didn't. After only a few minutes I stopped caring: just give me more Kidd Pivot.

Dark Matters: Spectacular and Good Feb 18, 2011

Take away any gender connotations from the term Patriarchal Power, and it seems like the best term to describe Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM's "Dark Matters." Can an artist’s creation take such a hold, that it can literally take over their creator's lives? Crystal Pite's creation has that certain quality to it, generating the type of ambiguity that begs to be analyzed further. The performance was the one of the most memorable things I have seen this season, both in terms of the energy and the creativity presented by the piece.

Rebuking One's Creator with Crystal Pite Feb 17, 2011

Tonight, “Dark Matters” performed by Kidd Pivot and choreographed by Crystal Pite opened to a sold out audience at On the Boards.  Pite’s work has been seen at OtB two other times as well.  It is amazing when any artist can live up to the hype and judging by the standing ovation and the howling love at the end of the first movement, Ms. Pite has lived up to her reputation yet again.
