Béjart Ballet Lausanne – The show must go on
“In a world where you had to be contemporary, modern, jazz… Maurice was doing Dance”. These are the words of Gil Roman, artistic director of Béjart Ballet Lausanne. Formed in 1960 by Maurice Béjart, the company is appreciated all over the world for its unique creations. At the Dance Machine Festival at Milan’s Arcimboldi theatre, the company presented “Le concours”, a ballet which recreates the atmosphere of a dance competition. Gil Roman tells us about his meeting with the maestro Béjart and his experience as the director of the company.
