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 39 dancers perform all over the world for great events or official receptions, as well as events to the profit of charity events. 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 or the Patinoire de Malley-Lausanne.
Since 2007, with his search and work for contemporary creation, Gil Roman maintains and develops the repertoire of Béjart Ballet
Lausanne. The work of Maurice Béjart is at the heart of this repertoire, with emblematic choreographies, as the Rite of Spring, Boléro or Ballet for Life but Gil Roman also wants to present the variety of this repertoire, with Light Suite, Piaf, or Suite Barocco for example. Choreographer for 20 years, the artistic director also nourished the repertoire with his own creations. Choreographers like Alonzo King, Julio Arozarena, Tony Fabre or Christophe Garcia also contributed to the creative development of Béjart Ballet Lausanne.
The Company remains faithful to its vocation: Preserving Maurice Béjart’s work, while remaining a space of creation.
