Béjart! Did You Say Béjart? A Profile of the Legendary Choreographer A documentary on the life and work of Maurice Béjart (1927-2007), one of the great choreographers of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Features clips of such signature works as Symphonie pour l’homme seul, Le Sacre du printemps, L’Oiseau de feu, Bolero, Les Chaises, Bhakti, Kabuki. Infused with both ballet and modern dance, and delivered with showmanship, his work was immensely popular everywhere in the world, attracting huge audiences, though in Britain and the US he received scorn from tradition-minded critics. Noted for his direction of two companies: The Ballet of the Twentieth Century in Brussels followed by the Béjart Ballet based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Advised by his philosopher father, Gaston Berger, that the two most important things in life are love and intelligence, this DVD shows this thinking in his unremitting passion for dance as well as his creative genius. 91 min. filmed in 2005, first released in 2012
