Liebe und Tod or Bhakti III


Maurice Béjart
Belt & Road Festival
October 13-15, 2023

The company at the Belt & Road Festival in Shenzhen, China

From October 13 to 15, 2023, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will be for the first time in Shenzhen, at the Belt & Road Festival, for three performances. The company will be dancing Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent  by Gil Roman, as well as Maurice Béjart‘s Liebe und Tod or Bhakti III, and Bolero.



For the opening act, Gil Roman presents Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent, a title borrowed from the Swiss writer Ludwig Hohl. This ballet 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 show will continue with Liebe und Tod or Bhakti III by Maurice Béjart.

It will end with Bolero choreographed by Maurice Béjart in 1961, to the music of Maurice Ravel. The central role (The Melody) is sometimes given to a female dancer and other times to a male dancer. The Rhythm is interpreted by a group of dancers.
