A thrilling part of OtB’s 15/16 Season, Betroffenheit returns to Seattle in a special co-presentation with Seattle Theatre Group. A word with no direct English translation that describes the shock and bewilderment experienced in the aftermath of a disaster, Betroffenheit touches on themes of loss, trauma, addiction, and recovery. This creation by two of Canada’s most celebrated companies is an innovative, boundary-stretching hybrid of theatre and dance. Betroffenheit received an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production, one of the highest awards in the field, in April 2017.  


KIDD PIVOT, led by director/choreographer Crystal Pite, tours extensively around the world with productions that include The Tempest Replica (2011), The You Show (2010), Dark Matters (2009) (which can be streamed online at, Lost Action (2006), and Double Story (2004), created with Richard Siegal. Kidd Pivot received the 2006 Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award, and was resident company at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, with the support of Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain, in Frankfurt, Germany from 2010 to 2012.
