Day 17_ Maurice Béjart

[Gentes del mundo, el coronavirus nos ha encerrado. Pero no sólo no podrá con nosotros, sino que vamos a aprovechar el encierro al máximo. Aquí va mi idea del día.]

Allá por 1996, Béjart creó Ballet for Life,  una obra “sobre la juventud y la esperanza, tan desesperanzados y optimistas como están”. Eran los tiempos en los que el SIDA le arrebató a tantos amigos.
La calidad del video es malísima, pero Mozart, Béjart y Gil Roman, están espléndidos. Es una de esas situaciones en las que la perfección humana logra superar la imprecisión de las máquinas.

[People of the world, the Coronavirus has locked us up. But not only will it not be able to take us, but we will make the most of the lockdown. Here’s my idea for the day.]

Back in 1996, Béjart created Ballet for Life, a work “about youth and hope, as hopeless and optimistic as they are”. These were the times when AIDS took away so many of his friends.
The quality of the video is very poor, but Mozart, Béjart and Gil Roman, are splendid. It is one of those situations where human perfection manages to overcome the imprecision of machines.
