Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young, joint creators behind The Guardian’s Best Dance Show of the 21st Century and the Olivier Award-winning Betroffenheit, return to Sadler’s Wells. For their new dance-theatre collaboration, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Crystal Pite and writer and performer Jonathon Young, together with Pite’s company Kidd Pivot, turn their brilliant minds to the comic play The Inspector General (known as ‘Revizor’ in Russia).

Taking Nikolai Gogol’s 1836 farce as a starting point, Revisor knits Jonathon Young’s text, recorded by leading Canadian actors, with Crystal Pite’s “gripping blend of body language and stylised movement” (The Independent) performed by eight dancers in this satirical tale of political corruption.
