Description: Grabbing well-deserved international attention, former Ballet Frankfurt dancer Crystal Pite fuses classical dance with structured improvisation and a strong theatrical sensibility. In The Tempest Replica, she uses the island setting of Shakespeare's The Tempest as a metaphor for isolation, captivity, and desire. She juxtaposes this setting to a nostalgic cityscape that evokes longing. This is an intriguing work in which chalk-white replicas deliver the story's essential plot, while its underlying tensions are fleshed out by real characters who articulate powerful emotion through dance.
