The Art of Baroque Dance [electronic resource]: Folies d'Espagne : From Page to Stage

Loading...
This video explores the elements of 17th century Baroque dance, charting the historical preservation of dance, from the academic page to its transformation into a vibrant performance. For this we can thank France's Louis XIV. An excellent dancer, he ordered the invention of a notation system for dance to teach, codify, and spread this art. This film examines one dance, "Folies d'Espagne," selected because it features short highly expressive variations--each with its own temperament--to inspire the choreography. During the course of this video, the creative process of researching, reconstructing, re-creating, and performing a Baroque dance is fully explored. Includes full performances of Pecourt & Feuillet's "Les folies d'Espagne pour homme" (1704) and Feuillet's "Les folies d'Espagne [...]

Gil Roman y el Béjart Ballet Lausanne [electronic resource]: El Esfuerzo y el Animo

Loading...
"The choreographer Maurice Bejart was one of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century. He revolutionized the art of dance and excited thousands of spectators throughout the world, many of them indifferent to ballet until then. In order to continue and preserve his work and ballets, Bejart named the French dancer Gil Roman, a member of his company since 1979, as his successor. Roman is well aware of the dauntingly large shoes he's expected to fill. In this film, we see how Roman's own choreography, as well as leadership, must prove worthy to secure the future of a beloved institution hitherto unimaginable without its founder's active guidance. Daringly, Roman chooses to prove his mettle by staging BBL's first-ever program without any Bejart works. We glimpse rehearsals, and danc [...]

Danced to music by Tchaikovsky, Janáček, Stravinsky, Mascagni and Massenet, the ballet includes some wonderfully funny sequences. Recorded under studio conditions.
