Here’s a tip: Whenever you see the name Crystal Pite on a season lineup, don’t ask questions, just get tickets quick. Based in Vancouver, B.C., Pite is one of the most mesmerizing young choreographers working today. If you get this issue in time to see her company Kidd Pivot at On the Boards (10/23–10/25; ontheboards.org), run, don’t walk. But you can also experience her curious grace at Meany Hall, where New York–based company Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet will perform several pieces of Pite’s choreography, including one that has never before been seen in Seattle. Tickets, people.
