This double bill from one of the world`s leading choreographers offers two of his major works, danced by the Ballet de l`opéra de Paris. The dreamlike Songe de Médée, with music by Mauro Lanza and freely based on the Greek myth of Medea, explores a woman`s soul, portraying her, paradoxically, as a tender loving mother and a tormented victim who sacrifices everything, including her children, for love. MC14/22 (Ceci est mon corps) is a meeting of the spiritual and the carnal, drawing on St Mark`s version of The Last Supper in the Bible: `Take, eat: this is my body`. Created for twelve male dancers, Preljocaj`s `Apostles of Movement`, and with soundscapes by Tedd Zahmal, this powerfully sensual and passionate work is a hymn to the male body, stripped down to its deepest reality, juxtaposing the glorification of strength and the condemnation of force.
