Le Marteau sans maître

Maurice Béjart's work is one of fascinating magnitude and diversity. The “Marteau sans maître” illustrates Béjart's passion for the music of his century and presents clear choreographic writing that has been stripped bare and whose abstraction has its roots in the purest academic vocabulary. The work of the choreographer on Boulez' partition is based exclusively on the relationship between the musical partition and movement. It is one of Maurice Béjart's major works, and was inspired by the poems of René Char. Here, his passion for poetic metaphysics, his attraction for the Far East and his personal symbolism shine through.
“Solar Eve, conceivable in flesh and in dust, I don't believe in the revelation of others, but only yours”.

“Man is just a flower of the air held by the earth, cursed by celestial bodies, inhaled by death: the breath and the shadow of this coalition, occasionally, elevate him”.

Béjart, Maurice

Maurice Béjart created the Ballet du XXe Siècle in Brussels in 1960, an international company that he directed and with which he toured around the world with, as his repertoire of creations grew: “Boléro” (1961), “Messe pour le temps présent” (1967) and “L'Oiseau de feu” (1970).
In 1987, the Ballet du XXe Siècle became the Béjart Ballet Lausanne. The great choreographer established himself in the Olympic capital. In 1992, he decided to limit the size of his company to around thirty dancers to "rediscover the essence of the performer” and, the same year, he founded the Rudra Béjart School-Workshop. Among the myriad of ballets created for this company, we can mention “Le Mandarin merveilleux”, “King Lear – Prospero”, “À propos de Shéhérazade”, “Le Presbytère...”, “MutationX”, “La Route de la soie”, “Le Manteau”, “Enfant-Roi” and “La Lumière des eaux et Lumière”.
 Director of theatre (“La Reine verte”, “Casta Diva”, “Cinq Nô modernes” and “A-6-Roc”) and opera (“Salomé”, “La Traviata” and “Don Giovanni”), filmmaker (“Bhakti”, “Paradoxe sur le comédien...”), Maurice Béjart also published several books (novels, memoirs, diaries, theatre plays). In 2007, just when he turned eighty, the choreographer created “La Vie du danseur racontée par Zig et Puce”. Maurice Béjart went on to create “Le Tour du monde en 80 minutes”, his last work, and passed away in Lausanne on 22 November 2007.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc) .
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.

Béjart Ballet Lausanne

Since its inception in 1987, Béjart Ballet Lausanne is a reference in the choreographic world. Chosen as his successor by Maurice Béjart, Gil Roman is leading the company and preserving its artistic excellence, since the disappearance of the master in 2007.

Maurice Béjart always wanted to open the world of the ballet to a larger audience. Animated by the same spirit, Gil Roman and his dancers perform all over the world. Béjart Ballet Lausanne is one of the very few companies able to fill vast spaces such as the NHK Hall of Tokyo, the Kremlin State Palace of Moscow, Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens, the Palais des congrès de Paris, Forest National in Brussels or the Patinoire de Malley-Lausanne.

Since 2007, with his search and work for contemporary creation, Gil Roman maintains and develops the repertoire of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne. The work of Maurice Béjart is at the heart of this repertoire, with emblematic choreographies, as The Rite of Spring, Boléro, The Ninth Symphony or Ballet for Life but Gil Roman also wants to present the variety of this repertoire, with Piaf or The Magic Flute for example. Choreographer for 20 years, the artistic director also nourished the repertoire with his own creations. Choreographers like Alonzo King, Tony Fabre, Christophe Garcia, Giorgio Madia or Julio Arozarena also contributed to the creative development of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne.

The Company remains faithful to its vocation: preserving Maurice Béjart’s work, while remaining a space of creation.

The Ballets Russes paved the way for what would become known as: neo-classical. Back then, the term “modern ballet” was frequently used to define this renewal of aesthetics: a savvy blend of tradition and innovation, which each choreographer defined in their own way.

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
