WINNER - OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST NEW DANCE PRODUCTION (2017)Some questions are impossible to answer and some experiences too personal to express. Choreographer Crystal Pite and actor/playwright Jonathon Young join forces to examine, with unflinching honesty, what happens to the individual in the wake of a trauma. A rare fusion of comedy and drama, poetry and movement, Betroffenheit has enraptured critics and audiences worldwide. After two sold-out runs, this landmark dance-theatre collaboration, co-commissioned by Canadian Stage, returns as part of a major international tour.
