L’HEURE EXQUISE

Maurice Béjart

Variations on a theme by Samuel Beckett “Oh, les beaux jours”
With Alessandra FERRI & Carsten JUNG

In this ballet, Maurice Béjart sets free Winnie, the heroine Of “Happy Days,” one of Samuel Beckett’s most famous plays. Her “mound” is no longer a sad mound of dandelions, but a delightful hillock of pink shoes which opens like a flower to let its occupant escape. Where Beckett unleashes violence in immobility, Béjart dissolves it into dance.
