The Rudra Béjart School, Lausanne, celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Exclusively, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will open this anniversary show.
« Rudra, Omnes Generationes »
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Rudra Béjart School, Lausanne, the students, hailing from six different continents, will accompany their teachers and present their creation at the Beaulieu Theatre of Lausanne on June 30th and July 1st. This multidisciplinary piece demonstrates the quality and the strength of the Béjart School through the ritualistic beauty of dance and music.
They sing and dance to the melodies of the Occident and of South America while telling us about the world —revealing their youth on texts and poems by Dom Hélder Câmara, Aimé Césaire and Léopold Sédar Senghor.
Every day, these young dancers experience the feeling of navigating from one culture to the other, from a familiar world to one of discovery.
Travel without fear, communicate, offer a trusting hand, accept differences, discover yourself, meet your dance!
Michel Gascard, Director of the Rudra Béjart School
For the first part, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will present four ballets that reflect the Company’s current work.
Altenberg Lieder by Maurice Béjart: on stage, “three beings will experience a unique moment of their lives by dancing right before your eyes. What is, what will this moment be?”
Couleur Blues by Gil Roman: on Citypercussion’s music, this pas de deux – developed for a female dancer and a male dancer – had been presented for the first time at the Bastia Theatre in 2016.
La Luna, by Maurice Béjart: created in 1984 for Luciana Savignano, this ballet had then been danced around the world by Sylvie Guillem. For the 25th anniversary of Rudra Béjart School, it is interpreted for the first time by Elisabet Ros.
To close the celebration, Gil Roman will present an extract of his current creation in progress.
