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 Thursday May 7 to Sunday May 10, 2020, Piaf by Maurice Béjart will be available for free online viewing.
“Piaf, it’s primarily a voice, stupendous, omnipresent, immortal, that goes beyond time and boundaries. Which female dancer, which actress can embody Piaf?
She is without substance; she is only love, an adored presence and agonizing to the other. Crossing the mirrors of loneliness, she jumps into the other’s arms, each time another, the same, always. Men– she discovered them, loved them, gave birth to them, sublimated them. Men are her strength, her joy, her eternity, created by her, they lived thanks to her, became all, eternally, Piaf.” – Maurice Béjart
