Logitech to sponsor Ballet Bejart Lausanne Automatic translate
Swiss company will bring ballet from Lausanne to the festival in Moscow
Moscow, Russia - March 21, 2013 - From April 4 to 7, the famous Ballet Bejart Lausanne creative group will perform at the Bolshoi Theater as part of the festival dedicated to the centenary of the appearance of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet “The Rite of Spring”. The tour will be sponsored by Logitech, a world leader in peripheral devices. The repertoire includes such one-act ballets as “Syncope”, “Cantata 51”, “Sacred Spring” and “Offering to Stravinsky”.

In 2012, the troupe already came on tour to the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, also with the support of Logitech.
Ballet Bejart Lausanne, like Logitech, is one of the most recognizable and popular names in Europe. A beautiful and poetic show is more like a theatrical production than a traditional ballet: in it, dance, pantomime and singing occupy an equal place.
BBL_LeSacreDuPrintemps_CreditFrancoisPaolini_4 copyIn April, on the New Stage of the Bolshoi Theater, troupe artists will perform “Cantata 51” to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, “Offering to Stravinsky”, as well as “Sincop” - this one-act ballet was staged by the acting artistic director of the troupe Gilles Roman. Special attention deserves Stravinsky’s ballet "The Rite of Spring", which is part of the golden fund of world art. The dream is based on the composer’s dream: he saw an ancient ritual where a young girl, surrounded by old men, dances to exhaustion to awaken spring, but dies.
Ballet Bejart Lausanne was named after the former troupe leader Maurice Bejart. His work was always appreciated in Russia, and Maurice himself worked with famous ballet dancers such as Maya Plisetskaya and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Ballet Bejart Lausanne is characterized by the production of synthetic performances, where artists on the stage dance, sing and read poetry. Bejart was important in the visual component of the show, so Salvador Dali, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Gianni Versace helped in the design of the ballet. The result of hard work was the fact that the Swiss visionary became one of the most famous choreographers, and his works created in the 60s and 70s still look fresh and modern.
Logitech’s engineers are also keen to make products that enhance user experience and outperform other peripherals for tablets and computers. Logitech novelties often combine several technologies: almost the same way as Ballet Bejart Lausanne dancers successfully combine different choreographic movements in their productions.
