For Angelin Preljocaj, dance plays with gravity, weight, and earth’s pull: it glues the dancer to the ground, he must free himself by jumping, but it has no action on the links woven between bodies. The choreographer invites us to a subtle and powerful love fight with gravity, deploying all the palette of movements of limbs, heads and bodies, to conquer everything that glues them to the dance carpet and pulls them back as soon as they evade it. A voluptuous state reached a thousand times, with summits, peaks, highs, and jumps where dancers take off and conquer space as they search for non-gravity.

"Gravitation is one of the four fundamental forces which govern the universe. It designates the attraction of two masses. It is invisible, impalpable, immanent and still it creates gravity. For years, the notions of weight, space, speed and mass have intuitively travelled through my research in choreography. Everyday work with the dancers brings me to experimenting with forms whose fundamental components revolve around this question, which is both abstract and terribly concrete. In line with my principle of alternation between pure research pieces and more narrative ballets, I’m waiting for the question of gravity to open up new writing possibilities."
