How does the Annunciation, that key moment which underpins a whole religion, resonate in us, what does it awaken?
While so many painters over the past 2000 years have sought time and again to understand the flurry of contradictory symbols, which in effect is what the Annunciation is, it comes as something of a surprise that a theme, a subject in which so many issues about the body are so manifestly implicated should have reminded almost entirely absent from choreographic art.
And yet, what we find here, deep down, is truly fascinating. (Angelin Preljocaj)
