Lausanne - Theatre and Shows
During his time in Lausanne, the famous choreographer Maurice Béjart created his company “Béjart Ballet Lausanne”. The BBL has performed to great acclaim all over the world, even after Béjart’s death in 2007 but remains loyal to Lausanne with very popular twice yearly performances.
The BBL performs in various venues in Lausanne every May or June and December, allowing audiences to discover the choreography of Maurice Béjart, but also new ballets created for the company by Gil Roman, the current artistic director, before travelling all around the world.
Do we really know the breadth of the creative talents of Maurice Béjart, his improbable prolixity, his perhaps unparalleled appetite for the cultures of the world?
Using a new projection technique that will allow moving cinema screens to be choreographed - with images specially realised with the company being projected onto them - the production next December at the Théâtre de Beaulieu, celebrating 30 years of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne and marking 10 years since the death of the choreographer and hence 10 years of the artistic and creative direction of Gil Roman, will attempt to explore the thought processes of a creator.
