The Art of Astonishment
Béjart Ballet Lausanne and the Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz have formed a partnership joining two real-time worlds of enchantment, sharing a common vision of a rich past and a promising future. Dance and fine watch-making have much in common, from the challenge of precise movement to the preservation of precious heritages, in this case those of Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the innovative creator of automatons in the 18th Century, and Maurice Bejart, a ground-breaking figure in 20th Century ballet.
Under the artistic direction of Gil Roman, the Bejart Ballet Lausanne is pleased to associate its image with the famous insignia of the Swatch Group, its exclusive “Presenting Partner.”
