The Painting on the Wall


Plunge into the fantastical world of Chinese fairy tales as they serve as inspiration for award-winning choreographer Angelin Preljocaj’s Painting On The Wall. Exploring themes of illusion and transcendence, and featuring dancers from the Ballet Preljocaj, the contemporary dance show travels through cultures and art forms while preserving the essence of the tale.
