Ballet Preljocaj

Anyone who has seen one of Ballet Preljocaj’s previous three Ann Arbor appearances is sure to be left with a lasting impression of stunning storytelling counterbalanced with demanding choreography that leaves the audience as breathless as the dancers.

Created in 2016 and based on a traditional and fantastical Chinese tale, La Fresque (The Painting on the Wall) is “infused with sensual beauty.” (Le Figaro) The piece tells the story of a painting come to life and a journey into another dimension, where the picture becomes a place of transcendence and a person can become part of the picture. The ballet seeks to explore the mysterious relations between representation and reality, fixed image and movement, immediacy and duration, the live and the inert.
