Plan_B celebrates dance
As the year draws to an end, Gil Roman and his company are pleased to present a new series of performances to the public at Plan_B.
Plan_B is a space designed by the Artistic Director of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne in the heart
of the company’s main studio, where visitors can discover the BBL’s work in progress. It can accommodate up to 100 people and allows the public to attend presentations in performance conditions.
We invite you to the first event of a wonderful dance series before the holiday season begins: Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent, a piece by Gil Roman set to John Zorn’s music, which was created in 2019 at the Opéra de Lausanne. It will then be followed by t ‘M et variations…, a choreographic piece imagined by the Artistic Director in 2016 for Maurice Béjart. The BBL will also perform it in Düdingen on November 24 (sold out!). BBL meets Pierre Henry is next on the program and pays tribute to the composer of concrete music with “Improvisations” by seven dancers who randomly choose themes to be performed. Finally, La porte and Symphonie pour un homme seul by Maurice Béjart will be presented.

With t ‘M et variations… Gil Roman signs a ballet where the movements become words addressed to Maurice Béjart. The artistic director created this ballet ten years after the founder’s demise and for BBL’s 30th anniversary. Pages after pages, in the form of a journal, intimate relationship, t ‘M et variations… is a series of variations on the theme of Love and the inner necessity of Dance. A radically fascinating choreography, chronic of a festive day full of colours and arabesques. A spectacle of pure sensations. Remarkable and bewitching!
