With La Fresque, world-renowned choreographer Angelin Preljocaj continues his exploration of fairytales. Turning his attention to the traditional tales of Asia, he takes inspiration in the famous eponymous Chinese story in which a traveller takes shelter from the rain in a temple and soon finds himself enchanted by one of the women depicted in a painting on the wall. Preserving the symbolism of the tale, the piece seeks to explore the mysterious relations between representation and reality, places at which the dance creates the bonds that link the fixed image and movement, instantaneity and duration, the live and the inert.
