Gravity offers Angelin Preljocaj a new space for creation and experimentation. 

Following these unknown paths, he takes twelve dancers ready to rise to the challenge with a contagious enthusiasm that liberates bodies, relieves them of their weight and frees them from all constraints... until the final apotheosis of Ravel's Bolero. Hypnotising.

A leading figure on the contemporary scene since the creation of his company in 1985, Angelin Preljocaj has choreographed close to 60 pieces. He regularly teams up with other artists: musicians, designers, fashion designers, illustrators... He alternates between abstract and radical projects and narrative ballets such as Snow White or Swan Lake. He also makes films, and was recently elected to l’Académie des Beaux-Arts.
