A gripping and visually arresting journey through the maze of trauma, addiction, and recovery, Betroffenheit exemplifies what can happen when theater and dance combine to achieve what neither could accomplish alone. Choreographer Crystal Pite and Electric Company Theatre’s Jonathon Young—two of Canada’s most innovative artists—have combined talents to create a searing work that recalls the shock and bewilderment of sudden disaster. Based on true events, this dance/theater hybrid integrates original music, text, and movement with puppetry and rich visual design to probe the depths of despair and the uphill battle to reclaim a life violently derailed.

Presented in partnership with the University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts & Dance

*Audience advisory: Due to adult themes, this show is recommended for ages 16 and up.

“A stunning testament to what can happen when life turns into art.” –The Globe and Mail
