Northrop to Present Ballet Preljocaj, 10/30
After stunning Minnesota audiences with a lush interpretation of Snow White in 2012, Ballet Preljocaj brings And then, one thousand years of peace, another epic work inspired by visions of the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelations, created in collaboration with the Bolshoi Theatre. Visionary choreographer Angelin Preljocaj masterfully evokes what is nestled in the innermost recesses of our existence, rather than prophesizing about compulsive waves of catastrophe, irreparable destruction, or the imminent end of the world. The use of intricate scenography and props such as chains, mirrors, and flags, as well as the frequent costume changes, lend the piece an abstract theatricality. Preljocaj uses these tools to unveil elements of our everyday modern rituals in unexpected ways.
