At this year´s Montpellier Dance Festival, La Belle Télé had a chance to record two outstanding evenings of dance and entrusted world-wide distribution to Poorhouse who are also handling other masterpieces by both choreographers, Hans van Manen and Angelin Preljocal.
Angelin Preljocaj created two ballets for the New York City Ballet, Spectral Evidence in 2013 and La Stravaganza in 1997. Both pieces have been revived for his own company Ballet Preljocaj which resides at the Pavillon Noir in Aix-en-Provence and gives about a hundred performances a year in France and abroad. Spectral Evidence to music by John Cage is based on the Salem Witch Trials and features for men in dark suits with clerical collars and four women in white dresses with patches of red silicon. La Stravaganza is choreographed to Vivaldi and electronic music merging fantasy and reality, a dialogue of the past with the present, the old world with the new world.
