Syncope by Gil Roman, Béjart fête Maurice and Boléro by Maurice Béjart at Festspielhaus in St. Pölten
The company performs for the first time at Festspielhaus in St. Pölten with Syncope by Gil Roman, Béjart fête Maurice and Boléro by Maurice Béjart.
A syncope, “in music, it is a rhythm out of time. We are talking about syncopated music. In medical terms, it is a stoppage or slowing of the heart. Five to ten seconds of loss of consciousness during which the brain can just imagine, invent or review without limit.” – Gil Roman
In Béjart fête Maurice, Gil Roman chose excerpts of ballets from Maurice Béjart, like the preparation of a party. A festive show which takes us into a journey through the universe of the Company’s founder. A series of pas de deux interlaced with excerpts from several ballets, Béjart fête Maurice, is a light rhapsody, a celebration, a ceremony!
The show ends with Boléro, choreographed in 1961 by Maurice Béjart, on Maurice Ravel’s music. The central role – la Mélodie – is sometimes given to a female dancer and other times to a male dancer. The rhythm is interpreted by a group of male dancers.
