Bejart Ballet Lausanne
Béjart Ballet Lausanne: a company that tours the world, surprises, moves and attracts the most diverse audiences since 1987.
A man, a work piece, a company. Béjart Ballet Lausanne is the instrument of a principal choreographer of the twentieth century. There are only few examples of such a symbiosis between a choreographer, his repertoire and his cast.
For twenty-five years, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne diffuses Maurice Béjart’s choreography worldwide. Forty-one dancers from 22 countries, strongly dedicated to the Maestro’s style, and who, due to hundreds of performances, are experiencing the appreciation from an ever changing audience, receiving applause each year, from country to country, from one theatre to another. La Fenice, the Royal Albert Hall, Bolchoï or Colôn.
"Béjart fête Maurice" [Béjart celebrates Maurice], a hymn to the past, present and future.
From 16 to 18 and 20 to 22 December, go and see the new production by the Béjart Ballet Lausanne.
As a prelude to the celebration in 2017 of the 30th anniversary of the BBL and to mark the 10 years since the passing of Maurice Béjart, Gil Roman and the company are presenting a series of new works.
In the first part, the artistic director unveils his new creation: “T'M and variations…”, a ballet in which the steps are so many words addressed to Maurice.
The second part, too, is new: Gil Roman presents a "homage" ballet comprising excerpts from Maurice Béjart's choreographies.
