And then, one thousand years of peace
Choreography by Angelin Preljocaj
Music by Laurent Garnier

Ballet Preljocaj brings And then, one thousand years of peace, an epic work inspired by visions of the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelations, created in collaboration with the Bolshoi Theatre.  Angelin Preljocaj evokes what is nestled in the innermost recesses of our existence, rather than prophesizing about compulsive waves of catastrophe, irreparable destruction, or the imminent end of the world. The use of intricate scenography and props such as chains, mirrors, and flags, as well as the frequent costume changes, lend the piece an abstract theatricality. Preljocaj uses these tools to unveil elements of our everyday modern rituals in unexpected ways.
