Now headquartered in both Frankfurt and Vancouver, Kidd Pivot is under the direction of Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, recipient of the 2011 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award. Pite has choreographed works for Nederlands Dans Theater I, Cullberg Ballet, Ballett Frankfurt, and other companies, and she has created and performed under the banner of her own company since 2001. The Company made its Pillow debut with Lost Action in 2009. She is a former dancer with Ballet British Columbia and Ballett Frankfurt, where she honed her choreographic craft under the eye of company director William Forsythe. Pite’s compelling Dark Matters gained the distinction of being presented in two subsequent Pillow seasons, and was retired from active repertory after one final 2012 performance featuring Pite herself.
