Perth International Arts Festival says
Raw and riveting dance drama.

Two of Canada’s most adventurous artists, award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite and playwright/performer Jonathon Young, join forces in this dance work of raw human emotion and heroic theatrical brilliance.

‘Betroffenheit’ is the state of shock and bewilderment that encompasses you in the wake of a disaster. In Betroffenheit, a crisis-management team is keeping your emergency situation alive and present, a trusted voice is urging you to come to terms with the past, and ‘The Show’ delivers you a steady supply of the distraction, escapism and pleasure you crave.

In one sense, you are a survivor and this is your refuge. In another, you’re the disaster waiting to happen. Either way, the show must go on.

Pite and Young have created a rich spectacle exploring universal themes of loss, trauma, addiction and recovery. Featuring six virtuosic performers, Betroffenheit combines comedy and drama, poetry and movement for a production that’s as thrilling and entertaining as it is profoundly moving.
