I reviewed Pite’s “Tempest Replica” for DanceTabs. Pite is an intriguing choreographer, with a great stage sense. But her interepretatin of the play is cold, distant, over-simplified to my eye. You can read my review here.

And here is a short excerpt:

“The artist and his creation; it’s a theme Pite has treated before, in Dark Matters. In that production, one of the main characters was represented by a bunraku puppet. Does she see the stage as a kind of elaborate marionette show? Perhaps.”
