Logitech will sponsor Ballet Bejart Lausanne automatic translate
The Swiss company will bring to the festival in Moscow a ballet from Lausanne
Moscow, Russia - March 21, 2013 - On April 4-7, the famous Ballet Bejart Lausanne will perform at the Bolshoi Theater as part of the festival dedicated to the centenary of the appearance of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet «The Sacred Spring». The sponsor of the company’s tour will be Logitech, the world leader in the manufacture of peripherals. The repertoire includes such one-act ballets as «Sinkopa», «Cantata 51», «The Sacred Spring» and «The Offering to Stravinsky».

In 2012 the troupe already came with tours 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, the actors of the troupe will perform «Cantata 51» for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, «The Offering to Stravinsky», and also «Sinkopu» - this one-act ballet was staged by the acting art director of the troupe Gilles Roman. Stravinsky’s ballet «The Sacred Spring» deserves special attention, which is included in the golden fund of world art. At the heart of the idea lies the composer’s dream: he saw an ancient ritual where a young girl, surrounded by elders, dances to exhaustion to awaken spring, but dies.
Ballet Bejart Lausanne was named after the former head of the troupe 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 characterizes the production of synthetic performances, where artists on stage dance, sing and read poetry. Bejart was important visual component of the show, so in the design of the ballet, Maurice was assisted by Salvador Dali, Jean Paul Gaultier and Gianni Versace. The result of painstaking work was the fact that the Swiss visionary became one of the most famous choreographers, and his works, created in the 60’s and 70’s, still look fresh and modern.
Engineers at Logitech also strive to make products that enhance the user’s capabilities and outperform other peripherals for tablets and computers. New Logitech often combine several technologies: almost the same as Ballet Bejart Lausanne dancers successfully combine in their productions different choreographic directions.
