From the creators of the internationally acclaimed Betroffenheit (winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production) comes a new dance/theatre work about corruption, farce and the forces of radical change. Young adapts an archetypal comic plot to generate the score for Pite’s stunning choreography. As dialogue and dance come in and out of alignment, Revisor is moved by its own opposing internal forces to create a theatrical expression of startling depth and complexity.
