Abjad Group

  • Béjart Ballet Lausanne
    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.

  • Alvin Ailey
    Alvin AILEY American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
     

    Led by Alvin AILEY and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents - and has reached millions more online and through television broadcasts.

    In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as "a vital American cultural ambassador to the world" that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage.

    When Alvin AILEY began creating dances, he drew upon his "blood memories" of Texas, the blues, spirituals, and gospel as inspiration, which resulted in the creation of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, Revelations. Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime, Alvin AILEY maintained that his company was not exclusively a repository for his own work.

    Today, the Company continues Alvin AILEY’s mission by presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones. In all, more than 235 works by over 90 choreographers have been part of the Ailey company’s repertory.

    Before his untimely death in 1989, Alvin AILEY named Judith JAMISON as his successor, and over the next 21 years, she brought the Company to unprecedented success. Judith JAMISON, in turn, personally selected Robert BATTLE to succeed her in 2011, and The New York Times declared "he has injected the company with new life".
