Gil Roman y el Béjart Ballet Lausanne : el esfuerzo y el animo( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 befoved 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 dancers past and present are interviewed. Excerpts of the new dances, look exciting, as does the climactic gala. Bejart himself is heard on archival tape and seen in stills, but the focus here is on the present magnificent company"--Container

Maurice Béjart by Colette Masson( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il fallut près de deux ans passés à Lausanne, Paris, Bruxelles ou encore Milan pour que ces derniers dialogues entre Maurice Béjart et Michel Robert puissent voir le jour. Maurice Béjart relate dans cet ouvrage des épisodes de sa vie souvent connus du grand public, mais en y posant un regard différent, celui d'un homme qui se retourne pour la dernière fois et parle sans détour. Il porte ainsi des jugements qui ne manqueront pas de surprendre, notamment sur ses propres créations, et donne sa version personnelle de certains faits notoires. Michel Robert fut le dernier à recueillir les confidences d'un Maurice Béjart désireux de laisser une image juste et complète de lui-même. Dans ce survol presque complet de l'oeuvre, le Maître revient sur ses aspirations, ses contradictions et ses rencontres marquantes. Il parle aussi librement de ses créations, qu'il analyse sans complaisance mais avec la fierté d'un créateur qui aura marqué un demi-siècle de l'histoire de la danse. Ce livre, Maurice Béjart voulait l'achever à tout prix. Il y consacra une grande partie de ses forces, jusqu'en novembre 2007 où il devait décéder à l'hôpital de Lausanne. Il faut lire et relire ces entretiens pour cheminer aux côtés d'un Maurice Béjart toujours vivant. Il nous parle à coeur ouvert, en toute sincérité, en toute amitié
