In order to go out and meet all kinds of audiences, Ballet Preljocaj takes dancers to unusual places.

Created in 1998, the G.U.I.D. (literally “urban group of danced intervention”) tours the cities of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, bringing dance to unexpected places while presenting pieces from Angelin Preljocaj’s repertoire.

The G.U.I.D. shows inhabit the public space: train stations, market squares or school yards become stages for everyone to discover contemporary dance. The group also frequently performs for private events and follows the Ballet Preljocaj from time to time, on French tours or even abroad.

All dancers have been specifically picked for this project. They are used to the choreographer’s methods and know how to show his works in the best light while staying close to the audience. The select pieces from Preljocaj’s repertoire reveal his taste for high quality writing, his rigour, the sheer inventiveness of his shows and his desire to bring dance before all audiences. After each performance, the dancers always take some time to answer questions, so don’t miss it!
