Do you wish you could be anonymous in our very public world? Crystal Pite covers the faces and hands of her dancers in an effort to find purity and grace in their anonymity, while noting that our most powerful universal force is noticeably invisible. Dark matter comprises approximately 96% of the observable universe, affecting the speed, structure, and evolution of galaxies, yet it is essentially unknown. Dark Matters invites its audience into a mysterious world bounded only by time, space, and object. Puppetry, new music, and dance commingle in original and evocative configurations, making Dark Matters a signature work by one of Canada’s (and probably the world’s) most ingenious choreographers. Pite says that “something unknowable, destabilizing, and strangely beautiful” compels her to create.
