City of a Thousand Trades
Choreographer Angelin Preljocaj explores the history of Buddha in this beautiful work for the Paris Opera Ballet.
Inspired by the history and writings surrounding Siddhartha's quest for enlightenment, Preljocaj interprets the various stages of his epic journey, contemplating cosmic disorder, doubt, inner turmoil, and ultimately, enlightenment. ‘’Preljocaj's own long-term quest has been to harness the earthly, physical nature of dance to its metaphysical possibilities, and in these and similar passages he succeeds magisterially.’’ (The Guardian)
