Pite explores these motifs in two contexts: a maquette of Shakespeare's island as a metaphor for isolation, captivity and desire, and a nostalgic cityscape that evokes longing. Pite's distinct choreographic language — a breadth of movement fusing classical elements and the complexity and freedom of structured improvisation — is marked by a strong theatrical sensibility and a keen sense of wit and invention..
