With his project, Angelin Preljocaj hopes to reconnect with the written word. The problem of story telling is the project of his inquiry.

Here is the challenge to which history is witness. Ballet and narration were born together. Contemporary dance in exploring new territories distanced itself from story telling. But a change of direction is now creating a new dynamic.
