Angelin Preljocaj, Artistic Director

“Dance is showing the soul with your body – it's sacred.” – Angelin Preljocaj

“Celebrated for his precision engineered choreography… Preljocaj defines choreography as creating a house that he invites dancers to live in.” The Guardian (U.K.)

France’s contemporary dance superstar Angelin Preljocaj tackles the Mount Everest of the ballet world, Swan Lake. Combining Tchaikovsky’s musical masterpiece with new arrangements, Preljocaj reinvents the timeless tale of love, betrayal, seduction and remorse into a modern ecological tragedy. With 26 dancers, this beautiful tribute takes flight as an ingenious adaptation in which “the excellent performers… move with nuanced, fragile physical poetry, and a sense of the wounded souls they have become” (The New York Times).

Dance Series Sponsors: Margo Cohen-Feinberg & Bob Feinberg, Ellen & Peter O. Johnson, Barbara Stupay, and Sheila Wald

Presented in association with UCSB Dept of Theater and Dance
