La Fresque by Ballet Preljocaj

Is there a secret passageway that allows us to enter a painting? Angelin Preljocaj, one of the leading stars of contemporary dance in France and abroad, answers "YES" with this fascinating exploration of the supernatural power of art. The choreography plunges us into the rich symbolism and metaphor of a traditional Chinese tale, The Painting on the Wall, a tale of two travelers mesmerized by a magnificent fresco. The ballet seeks to explore the mysterious relations between representation and reality, fixed image and movement, immediacy and duration, the live and the inert. Originally conceived for young audiences, this journey to a parallel universe fascinates at any age.  

  


The U.S. tour of La Fresque by Ballet Preljocaj is supported by Institut français, Paris.
