Canadian dancer/choreographer Crystal Pite and her company Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM break out in the United States with her newest piece, Dark Matters. The title refers both to astrophysics and human impulses, exploring the idea of undetectable forces at work in cosmology, in the mind and body, and in the creative act itself. This stunning theatrical hybrid of puppetry and dance opens as a sinister fable in which an artist creates a puppet with fateful results, and culminates in electrifying contemporary ballet.
