Kidd Pivot/Crystal Pite: The Tempest Replica description
Based on motifs from Shakespeare's The Tempest, Pite stages a game of revengeand forgiveness ; reality and imagination, exploring these motifs in two contexts. Firstly, represented as an on stage storyboard, with the plot points of the narrative delivered minimally through the gestures and postures of faceless chalk- white figures inside a maquette- like space.
Secondly, the narrative is explored through a series of portraits - the characters and relationships manifested through fierce physical language and emotion, to produce a work of rare insight and innovation.
