The BBL returns with Basso Continuum, a new creation by Gil Roman, and 7 danses grecques by Maurice Béjart

Deprived of its audience since the beginning of the pandemic, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will finally return to the stage of the Opéra de Lausanne, which has asked it to open its new season. The company will perform “Basso Continuum”, the latest creation of its Artistic Director, Gil Roman, and “7 danses grecques” by Maurice Béjart, from October 2-11.

After “Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent”, which is the fruit of his encounter with the American composer John Zorn in 2019, Gil Roman now presents “Basso Continuum”, a choreography set to musical compositions by Richard Dubugnon from Lausanne. In 2014, he received the Vaud Cultural Prize for Music and was nominated for the 2016 Classical Music Victoires. Richard Dubugnon plays the double bass live on stage.

The second choreographic piece on the evening program, “7 danses grecques” by Maurice Béjart, is based on the music of Mikis Theodorakis. “This is a ballet in which Greece – according to the Greeks – is very much present despite borrowing little from its folklore,” explained the creator of the BBL.
