Ballet Preljocaj

Description

Choreographer Angelin Preljocaj’s La Fresque (The Painting on the Wall) navigates the space between representation and reality as it interprets the fantastical Chinese tale of a painting come to life and a journey into another dimension. “Infused with sensual beauty” (Le Figaro, France), it immerses the audience into the fantastical world of Pu Songling’s “The Painted Wall” with riveting choreography augmented by evocative sets, videos and an electro-fusion score by Nicolas Godin (co-founder of Air). Demonstrating Preljocaj’s “clean, clear lines and virtuosic speed and coordination” (The New York Times), ideas of illusion, transcendence and the place of art in today’s society are omnipresent in this contemporary work for 10 dancers.
