This documentary, made with the complicity of Maurice Béjart, reveals the first 30 years of his life which were totally unknown: his happy childhood in Marseille, the painful loss of his mother, his classic training at the hard Russian school, his father’s death, the philosopher Gaston Berger, the debuts in Birgit Cullberg’s Swedish company.
All these events marked the dancer, the choreographer, the artist, the thinker, and they throw a new light on his work. It is the genius of Béjart under all it’s forms that is shown in this film which proposes a global vision of this already legendary figure of dance.
Listen as Béjart sits down one last time in front of the camera to tell his remarkable story.
