SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI TO CHOREOGRAPH 
JAGGED LITTLE PILL MUSICAL

AT AMERICAN REPERTORY THEATER

 

Olivier Award and KAIROS Prize-winning choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui has joined the creative team of the musical adaptation of Alanis Morrisette’s album Jagged Little PillAmerican Repertory Theater artistic director Diane Paulus will helm the production, which will feature a book by Diablo Cody (Academy Award winner for her screenplay of Juno) and songs from Morrisette’s Grammy-winning album, co-written by Glen Ballard.

 

Flemish-Moroccan Cherkaoui first garnered international attention for his 1999 piece Anonymous Society. He received the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production for Puz/zle and the 2011 Award for Babel (Words) with Damien Jalet.

“From Beyonce’s performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards to his contemporary dance pieces, Larbi’s choreography is powerfully emotional and theatrical," says Paulus. “He has a profound passion for Alanis’s music, and I am thrilled to be collaborating with him on bringing Jagged Little Pill to the stage.”

 

Jagged Little Pill begins performances at A.R.T. on May 5, 2018, and is currently scheduled to run through June 30, 2018. Tickets to preview performances (May 5 – May 23) are on sale now at AmericanRepertoryTheater.org. Tickets to performances beginning May 24 will go on sale on March 15, 2018.
