The Nights (Les Nuits) choreography by A. Preljocaj. Chaillot National Theater.

World-renowned French ballet company, Ballet Preljocaj, comes to Johannesburg with a cast of eighteen dancers to perform Les Nuits (The Nights) for the first time in South Africa.

These tales contain some very sensual aspects, which the choreographer wished to represent through dance. What makes One Thousand and One Nights particularly captivating is the device established through the character of Sheherazade.
