Angelin Preljocaj (2011)

Angelin Preljoçaj (French pronunciation: ​[pʁəljotʃaj]; born 1957 in Sucy-en-Brie, France) is a French dancer of Albanian origin and choreographer of contemporary dance.


Preljocaj's choreographic work is steeped in his writing of the history of classical ballet, but is resolutely contemporary. He joined the repertoire of the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris in the early 1990s and has headed the company since 1985. In 1995, he received the Prix Benois de la Danse as choreographer. Preljocaj, subsequently renamed Ballet Preljocaj, has been in residence at the Black Hall of Aix-en-Provence since 1996.
