    • Synopsis
    • His last creation… Around the world in 80 minutes
      The seasons change. One creation follows another. In autumn 2007, between two tours, the 35 Béjart Ballet Lausanne dancers rehearse for “Around the world in 80 minutes“.
      Although Maurice Béjart uses Jules Verne’s cherished idea of a trip around the globe, he adds his own touch with memories of the countries he has visited.Few choreographers have travelled as much as Béjart. Whether at the head of his Ballet de l’Etoile(1954-1957), his Ballet-Théâtre de Paris (1957-1960), his Ballet du XXème siècle (1960-1987) or his Béjart Ballet Lausanne (since 1987), he has travelled the world incessantly, halting always where he feels most comfortable: at the crossroads of civilisations.
