Stage velour curtains CLIVIA 600 and GOBELINTÜLL

Over the years, Gerriets has become one of the preferred partners of the renowned contemporary ballet company Preljocaj. Our choice of fabrics and our technical equipment enable us to meet the specific and sometimes very complex requirements of the renowned choreographer Angelin Preljocaj, whose "Pavillon Noir", a venue entirely dedicated to dance in Aix-en-Provence, and his international productions, place Gerriets' expertise at the heart of their creation.

Project data

" La Fresque "

"La Fresque, inspired by a famous Chinese fairy tale, tells us about this journey into another dimension where the image becomes a place of transcendence and the physical being enters into intelligence with the image [...] In this performance, I want to explore the mysterious relationships that exist between representation and reality." - Angelin Preljocaj

" La Gravité "

"Gravity is one of the four fundamental forces that govern the universe. It describes the attraction of two masses [...] For years, the concepts of weight, space, speed and mass have intuitively permeated my choreographic research. My daily work with the dancers leads me to experiment with forms whose fundamental components revolve around this abstract and at the same time terribly concrete question". - Angelin Preljocaj.
