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 [...]

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.
