About the Event

 La Fresque (The Painting on the Wall) 

Angelin Preljocaj, Artistic Director 

Is there a secret passageway that allows us to enter a painting? Angelin Preljocaj, one of the leading stars of contemporary dance in France and abroad, answers "YES" with this fascinating exploration of the supernatural power of art. The choreography plunges us into the rich symbolism and metaphor of a traditional Chinese tale, The Painting on the Wall, a tale of two travelers mesmerized by a magnificent fresco. Originally conceived for young audiences, this journey to a parallel universe fascinates at any age.

 

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
