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 [...]

Hans van Manen [electronic resource]: Black Cake (Bavarian State Ballet)

Loading...
The scene for van Manen's Black Cake is a society party. Elegantly-dressed couples dance with each other and his choreography reveals a whole range of undercurrents in the relationships between the men and women. In the finale, the party-goers succumb to the influence of alcohol and all pretence of sophisticated decorum crumbles. Danced to music by Tchaikovsky, Janáček, Stravinsky, Mascagni and Massenet, the ballet includes some wonderfully funny sequences. Recorded under studio conditions.

The Royal Cambodian Ballet [electronic resource]: Dancing for the Gods

Loading...
Filmed in Cambodia, Dancing for the Gods looks at the renaissance of Khmer classical dance which was all but destroyed by Pol Pot. Only five teachers - the 'living dictionaries' of its complex movement vocabulary - escaped the killing fields. One survivor, Proeung Chhieng, and Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, a former star dancer, have been responsible for setting up a new school and Royal Ballet. The demanding training of the dancers and the ancient traditions of their art are highlighted in this documentary.

The Green Table [electronic resource]

Loading...
One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance, Kurt Jooss's ballet expresses the futile, relentless tragedy of war. The flashing white gloves of the diplomats around the green table and Death's inexorable stamping as he gathers in his victims, make an unforgettably powerful impact. This studio recording with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago was staged by the choreographer's daughter, Anna Markard, who reconstructed his work as faithfully as possible. Frederic Cohen's score for two pianos is played by May Sofge and Fiona Boznos.

The Kirov Celebrates Nijinsky [electronic resource]: Le Spectre de la Rose

Loading...
Created by Fokine to the music of Weber's Invitation to the Dance, Le Spectre de la rose is one of the choreographer's most poetic creations. With Zhanna Ayupova as the young girl who dreams that the spirit of the rose (Igor Kolb) enters her window and dances with her before disappearing with a spectacular leap, this Kirov staging recreates the original décor designed by Léon Bakst, the charm of which lies in its subtle understanding of the romantic ethos of the 1830s-1840s.

Ballet Boyz [electronic resource]: Rise and Fall

Loading...
A great quartet in residence at a packed Sadler's Wells - three dancers (Sylvie Guillem, Michael Nunn, William Trevitt) and a choreographer, all at the top of their world-class game. Russell Maliphant's choreography is a dense mixture of influences from ballet to martial forms. As the dance builds, the thread of the choreography binds the trio tighter and the high, precious balances that toss Sylvie Guillem to further and further extremes create a mesmerising scenario of combat and trust.

The Kirov Celebrates Nijinsky [electronic resource]: Shéhérazade

Loading...
Sheherazade is based on the first story of The Thousand and One Nights and danced to music by Rimsky-Korsakov. When it was first staged, with Nijinsky in the role of the Golden Slave, Mikhail Fokine's choreography of the exotic and passionate tale was a huge success. The ballet's triumph was also due to the fabulous set and costume designs of Léon Bakst. This Kirov staging recreates Bakst's designs. Svetlana Zakharova dances the title role, with Farukh Ruzimatov as the slave lover she risks all for. This live recording was made at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris.

Hydra [electronic resource]

Loading...
This dance work by Australian choreographer Gideon Obarzanek was inspired by an ancient Greek myth about a water goddess who lured sailors to their deaths. He creates an edgy, abstract world of seduction and devastation, at once sensual and disturbing. The mezmerising and daring piece is physically demanding on the seven dancers of Chunky Move who perform on a floor that gives way to let in a dark pool of water. A short documentary introduction gives an insight into Obarzanek's choreographic process.
