Invisible, impalpable, immanent: gravitation according to Angelin Preljocaj is a phenomenon that is as essential as it is mysterious. To question it, his new creation delves into the fundamentals of his dance.

For years, the notions of weight, space, speed, mass, have crossed through Angelin Preljocaj’s ballets “in an intuitive manner”. Even if, loyal to his rule, the choreographer has been alternating for the last 30 years between “pure research pieces and more narrative ballets”, these immaterial themes are the common threads of his career. With Gravité, he signs a resolutely “abstract” piece that explores the universal laws of attraction of masses between themselves, whilst going back to the sources of his gestural writing. “From the lightest to the most massive”, he invents for each degree of resistance of air a sequence of specific movements. Each one is connected to a musical piece, in a large range of tones and rhythms going from Gérard Grisey to Dmitri Chostakovitch, via Jean-Sébastien Bach. The scientific theories of Newton and Einstein are answered by “the bodily and spatial sensations” of dancers, in a real carnal and cosmic “odyssey”.
