    Recorded music

    Throughout his long creative career, Angelin Preljocaj has enjoyed drawing on a variety of sources of inspiration including painting, literature, music, politics and religion while constantly exploring the body and movement. For his latest visit to the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées as part of the TranscenDanses season, he will present a new work and two iconic pieces from his repertoire. Annonciation is a powerfully dramatic pairing for two female dancers premiered in 1995. This choreographic encounter between the Virgin Mary and the Angel Gabriel is a subtle blend of ecstasy and suffering. The bodies move towards each other, acknowledge one another, and submit to each other to the tune of angelic harmonies by Vivaldi and more contemporary sounds by Canadian composer Stéphane Roy. In the second half, the choreographer was inspired by unusual marriage customs in the Balkans. To the brilliant score of Stravinsky’s Noces, five pairs of dancers execute a series of steps, pirouettes and jumps in a continuous surge of motion. In a frenetic circle dance incorporating both folk and modern traditions, we witness fast-paced energetic dancing to the frantic rythym of unpredictable beats.
