L’Oiseau de Feu

Théâtre du Léman
March 24-26, 2023

Béjart Ballet Lausanne is back in Geneva, Switzerland

For the first time, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will perform from March 24 to 26, 2023, at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva, Switzerland. The program imagined by Gil Roman is now revealed:

The company will be performing Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent by Gil Roman and The Firebird by Maurice Béjart.



Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent, a title borrowed from the Swiss writer Ludwig Hohl, is entirely choreographed to the music of John Zorn, 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. 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…


The second choreographic piece on the evening program, The Firebird by Maurice Béjart, is based on the music of Igor Stravinsky. “The Firebird is the Phoenix, which rises from its ashes. Bird of life and joy, whose splendor and strength remain indestructible and impossible to tarnish.“ – Maurice Béjart
