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

4 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 84 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 befoved 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"--Container

Wieviel wiegt Ihr Gebäude, Mr. Foster?( Visual )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die Entwürfe des Architekten Norman Foster bestechen durch ihre Logik und sind dabei nie langweilig. Die Reichstagskuppel in Berlin, der Hearst Tower in New York City, Hongkongs Flughafen Chek Lap Kok, der Viaduc de Millau über dem südfranzösischen Tarntal, das renovierte Grand Hotel Dolder in Zürich oder die in Bau befindliche Masdar City in Abu Dhabi sind architektonische und auch technische Meisterleistungen. Norman Foster entwarf mit seinem Architekturbüro diese Zukunftsvisionen, die wie Landmarken aus der Stadtlandschaft ragen. Auch als Designer hat er sich einen Namen gemacht. Das Tischsystem "Nomos" ist heute einer der Design-Bestseller des Architekten. "Nomos" bringt Fosters Arbeit auf den Punkt. Schönheit ist hier eine Frage der Logik. Der Arbeitersohn aus Stockport, nahe Manchester, begeisterte sich früh für Architektur und arbeitete nach Royal Air Force und Architekturstudium an der Yale School of Art and Architecture mit Richard Buckminster Fuller zusammen. Anschließend gründete er mit seiner Frau Wendy sowie Sue und Richard Rogers ein Architekturbüro. Der Film "Wie viel wiegt Ihr Gebäude, Mr. Foster" erzählt Norman Fosters Weg vom Arbeitersohn aus Stockport zum bekannten Architekten." [3sat]

"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

Artist, innovator, visionary: architect Norman Foster is all this and more. From humble, working-class beginnings in Manchester to the world's greatest living architect, Foster is as talented as he is dedicated. The seemingly effortless lyricism of his architectural designs led to Foster's nickname - the 'Mozart of Modernism'. From the kooky characteristics of New York's Hearst Tower to the elegant powerful way the Reichstag acknowledges history while looking to a new Germany, Foster's designs are creative, thoughtful, dynamic and unique
