A man falls in love with a woman painted on a fresco... and steps into the wall to join her in the painting. Using this Chinese folk tale as a starting point, Angelin Preljocaj once again demonstrates his matchless talent as a story teller : without words, his dance weaves the tale; the dancers are the dialogues; the stage design brings it to life and illustrates it; the music sets the tone and intersperses suspense. From his pared down choreography and sumptuously aesthetics he leads you into the heart of a poetic adventure. Following the hero, you become immersed in another reality; Across various ‘tableaux’ which make up this metaphorical and delicately dreamy work, you soak up the Zen atmosphere and the philosophical scope, then find yourselves being captivated by its almost hypnotic charm. You then realise that this fresco abounds with references and that the story also has intimations of the history of dance and choreography over the ages. You will find considerable enjoyment in the harmonious stage design which conjures up many treasures to transform this tale into pure entertainment.
