Ballet Preljocaj has forged an internationally acclaimed reputation for presenting well known narratives through dramatic and virtuosic choreography and dance, highly sophisticated music and spectacular design.
The company performs about 100 dates per year on tour, in France and abroad, including the Lincoln Center, New York and the Music Centre, Los Angeles. Now QPAC, Brisbane, Australia will be added to the list.
Ballet Preljocaj became the National Choreographic Centre of Champigny-sur-Marne and Val-de-Marne in 1989. In 1996, the ballet was welcomed at the Cité du Livre in Aix-en-Provence and became the Ballet Preljocaj – National Choreographic Centre of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region, the Bouches-du-Rhône Department, the Pays d'Aix Community and the City of Aix-en-Provence in France.
Since founding his company, now composed of 26 dancers, Angelin Preljocaj has created 45 choreographic works, ranging from solo to larger formations.
