Gil Roman and the Béjart Ballet Lausanne : of heart and courage by Arantxa Aguirre Carballeira( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The choreographer Maurice Bejart was one of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century. He revolutionized the art of dance and excited thousands of spectators throughout the world, many of them indifferent to ballet until then. In order to continue and preserve his work and ballets, Bejart named the French dancer Gil Roman, a member of his company since 1979, as his successor. Roman is well aware of the dauntingly large shoes he's expected to fill. In this film, we see how Roman's own choreography, as well as leadership, must prove worthy to secure the future of a beloved institution hitherto unimaginable without its founder's active guidance. Daringly, Roman chooses to prove his mettle by staging BBL's first-ever program without any Bejart works. We glimpse rehearsals, and dancers past and present are interviewed. Excerpts of the new dances, look exciting, as does the climactic gala. Bejart himself is heard on archival tape and seen in stills, but the focus here is on the present magnificent company"--Original container

5 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An inspired showman, Béjart attracted huge new audiences for dance with the productions he mounted in sports stadia, public squares and circus tents. Punctuated by Béjart{u2019}s narration of his life story, his magical staging of The Nutcracker is an enchanting and enchanted autobiography. Tchaikovsky's score is augmented with popular accordion music performed on-stage by the legendary Yvette Horner. Béjart Ballet Lausanne recorded the work at the Théâtre du Châtelet

Aria by Montserrat Caballé( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Aria, Gil Roman perpetuates Maurice Béjart's ambition: to create new pieces with the company and other choreographers. Created in 1987 by Maurice Béjart, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne is the successor of the prestigious Ballets du XXe siècle, formerly based in Belgium. In 2007, after Maurice Béjart's Death, without any doubt one of the Major figures of dance in the 20th century, choreographer of the Boléro performed today by companies all over the world, Gil Roman, a former dancer and Béjart's assistant, became the company's artistic director. Since then, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne has had a double ambition: of course, to diffuse its famous founder's art and style. But also to create new ballets thanks to several choreographers invited every year, so that the BBL does not become a company-museum. In 2008, the BBL created Aria, a piece choreographed by Gil Roman himself, his first creation since his master's death. Inspired by the Minotaur's myth, Aria is a ballet on the search for unity. According to Gil Roman, "the myth of the Minotaur is above all the fight of a unique person, embodied by Theseus and the Minotaur who pursue each other, fight and destroy each other. None of them survives this fight but they come alive again as one. Like this myth, free and Dionysiac dance corresponds to the instinctive force and to energy, and classical and Apollonian dance to reason and construction. Two disciplines mix each other on stage and become a single one." Gil Roman entered the Ballets du XXe siècle in 1979 and became Maurice Béjart's faithful follower from the beginning. His style shows his own personality and pays tribute to Béjart. Gil Roman received in 2005 the Danza & amp; Danza Award of the best dancer for his performance of Jacques Brel in the ballet Brel & amp; Barbara and the Nijinsky Award of the Monaco Dance Forum in 2006

"L'objectif de notre documentaire était d'être proche de la compagnie au début de cette nouvelle étape décisive. Nous voulions les avoir au premier plan lorsqu'ils ont présenté le ballet posthume de Maurice à Bâle, à l'occasion du premier anniversaire de sa mort, et lorsque, un mois plus tard, ils ont interprété à Lausanne la première mondiale d'un nouveau programme incluant des chorégraphies d'autres auteurs. Nous voulions être à leurs côtés lorsqu'ils recevraient la foule de critiques que suscite toute initiative et, surtout, nous voulions témoigner du fait qu'en matière d'art, celui qui résiste gagne, et que le Béjart Ballet Lausanne est disposé à se battre." -- 4ème de couverture
