BAM: Ballet Preljocaj takes on
John Cage's Empty Words
(Sponsored Email)

Ballet Preljocaj
Music by John Cage
Choreography by Angelin Preljocaj

Whether putting a modern spin on the classics (Snow White, with costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier) or creating blazingly original works (N, Ballet Preljocaj; Le Parc, Paris Opera Ballet), French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj challenges conventional ideas about form and content.

This season, Ballet Preljocaj makes a rare New York appearance with Empty moves (parts I & II), a riveting new work—set to a live recording of John Cage's Empty Words—that relishes in the body's remarkable ability for precise line, clarity, and form.
