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!

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.
