The BBL was acclaimed by the 100,000 people who were able to watch four films for free on its website between March 26 and April 19. Deprived of any live shows until the end of its season due to the current situation, the company would like to support its community by releasing a new selection of ballet to (re)discover on the homepage of bejart.ch.
From the National Opera of Beijing to the Great Theaters of Hangzhou and Shanghai, the film maker Arantxa Aguirre followed the company during its Chinese tour (2011). Backstage of a long trip of the BBL, alternating between travel scenes and work sessions, this documentary also includes extracts from the following ballets: Dionysos suite and Boléro by Maurice Béjart and Là où sont les oiseaux by Gil Roman. (Director: Arantxa Aguirre, 2013).
