Gil Roman

John Zorn is one of the leading composers of contemporary American music. The density and diversity of his extraordinary work, which began in the mid-1970s, as well as the audacity and artistic freedom he expressed through his craft, never ceased to challenge and fascinate the artistic director of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne. It was written that a meeting between the avant-garde musician and the choreographer would happen…

 

January 2016, the Village, New York. The two artists exchange for the first time about their respective artistic experiences, cultural heritage, and desire to transcend it and free themselves from it in order to push back the boundaries of art. The conversation is meaningful, rich, and passionate. Naturally, Gil Roman shares with him his desire to use his music for one of his ballets. The appointment is set….

 

2018, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne studio, Lausanne. Facing a considerable body of work, Gil Roman immerses himself in the various compositions making up the universe that the brilliant multi-instrumentalist has explored from 1990 to 2017… Step by step, with a movement, a gesture, Gil Roman brings his dancers beyond the walls…
