For their return to the Opera, Gil Roman and his dancers from the Béjart Ballet Lausanne invite you to a fascinating journey...

POSTPONED

Following the latest directives from the Confederation, the Opéra de Lausanne is unfortunately forced to cancel the performances of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne on November 27, 28 and 29, 2020. They will be postponed to a date to be defined. More info here.

The artistic collaboration, the sincere and deep friendship between Maurice Béjart and Pierre Henry, the inventor of concrete music with his accomplice Pierre Schaeffer, have marked history. One thinks of course of Symphonie pour un homme seul, the founding work of the Béjart style, proposed by the BBL as the closing of this new programme.

IMPROVISATIONS
For the opener of the night, the BBL seeks its resonance by relying on the dramatic structure of the ballet variations for “Une porte et un soupir” created in Brussels in 1965 to the music of Pierre Henry. The score is here entrusted to the group Citypercussion: the original is nothing more than the echo of a few sounds, integrated sound effects, mixed in sixteen new compositions played on stage.

THE DOOR
Still looking but on the same line with the second piece of the evening’s program. In 1970, for the launch of the Brooklyn Academy’s season in New York, Maurice Béjart caused a sensation by presenting La porte : a solo on point regulated for Maïna Gielgud to the music of four of the Variations for a door and a breathe. Here, Gil Roman questions identity by entrusting the role to a dancer for the first time.

SYMPHONY FOR A LONELY MAN
Back to the original closing programme with Symphony for a Lonely Man, sixteen years after its last performance at the Théâtre Métropole in Lausanne. It premiered in Paris before a sparse audience on July 26, 1955, this ballet reveals a choreographer whose singular personality and talent would revolutionise the art of ballet. Born from an impromptu meeting between the choreographer and the two Pierres, this first autobiography of a young choreographer giving free reign to his aspirations, this unusual piece reveals him to the world.
