The Canada Dance Festival has commissioned a new work from Kidd Pivot to premiere at the 2008 festival. The CDF work is a collection of four 15-minute works. Although they are not specifically related, overlapping themes of impermanence and human connection - to other people and to the external world - unite the program. Three works are primarily serious in tone: A Picture of You Falling tells the tragic love story of a relationship’s collapse; Decembering considers death and transformation; Lisbon uses the 1755 earthquake that destroyed that city to question human faith in good and evil. The fourth piece, Facebreak, is a much more playful approach to the possibilities for connection in the scattered micro-communities of the internet age.
