Kidd Pivot’s Lost Action launched White Bird Uncaged in Fall 2008 and Portland audiences discovered in Crystal Pite one of Canada’s most exciting and inventive choreographers. Emerging out of Pite’s fascination with the unseen forces at work on mind and body, Dark Matters is a brilliant combination of life-like puppetry and dynamic movement featuring a stunning original score from long-time collaborator Owen Belton. A haunting portrait of the unknown, it is a performance that pulls itself apart in an attempt to discover what it is made of.
