By its diversity, its complexity, the work of Maurice Béjart is one of the most unique. The choreographer does not follow only one line. He even rejects the idea of “style”. Nevertheless, he adapts the action to the material.
In other words, artistic means are implemented according to the project being created.
A unique piece of music, Boléro, or multiple pieces of music, La Route de la soie (The Silk Road), the dance alone, Le Mandarin merveilleux ( The Miraculous Mandarin), or working from a text, Enfant-roi (The Child king), a story, Le Manteau (The Overcoat), a theme MutationX, or an abstraction, Mouvement, rythme, étude (Movement, rhythm, study). By his way of “saying I” in his ballet, Casse-noisette (The Nutcracker), of translating the questions and concerns of his contemporaries, viewing them with prescience, Maurice Béjart touches the aficionados of dance.
