The newest work by the creators of the international sensation Betroffenheit. Written by Jonathon Young who adapted Nikolai Gogol's 1836 play (The Inspector General) and choreographed and directed by Crystal Pite, Revisor satirizes the greed, pettiness and corruption of the citizens of a small town who mistake a low-level clerk for a high-ranking government inspector from the city. Soon the entire community is wining, dining, and bribing him with wads of cash. Eight dancers embody the recorded dialogue of some of Canada’s finest actors in this warped pantomime/karaoke ballet with broad, exaggerated gestures. Revisor uses the mutable language of conflict and comedy to examine themes of corruption, deception, human failing and moral bankruptcy, with eviscerating wit and bold physicality.
"Stunning work... every element in this remarkable piece contributes to its dynamic synthesis of movement, voice and text, light, sound, set and the imaginative vision of its creators.” VANCOUVER SUN
