Fauves

J-Ch. Maillot

This Ballet is the celebration of the reunion of Gil Roman and Jean-Christophe Maillot. Both met at Rosella Hightower’s School. A friendship weaves, friendship which Maurice Béjart had intended to celebrate with a pas de deux dedicated to both dancers. But the time left… And it is Jean-Christophe Maillot who fulfilled the idea of Maurice. So you will discover with Fauves a pas de deux created for Bernice Coppieters and Gil Roman on a music by Claude Debussy Prélude à l’Après-midi d’un faune.
