Gil Roman, laureate of the Prix du rayonnement
The Fondation Vaudoise pour la Culture – FVPC (Foundation of the Canton de Vaud for the culture) just awarded Gil Roman, artistic director of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, with the Prix du rayonnement 2014 (standing Prize). It rewards a personnality of the local cultural world who spreads the cultural inheritage of the canton way beyond its borders. The FVPC pays tribute to the dancer-choreographer who leads since 2007 the company to tours all around the world with unaltered success. Faithful to the master, Gil Roman is the pride of Lausanne and its canton by keeping Béjart’s repertoire alive and by enriching it with new creations.
