    “I had a blue bicycle, they have my blue bicycle” by Marina Mascarell Martinez

  • BEJART-POELVOORDE-LE GAC-PAS DE DEUX

    BEJART-POELVOORDE-LE GAC-PAS DE DEUX

    A beautiful pas de deux choreographed by Maurice Bejart and danced by Rita Poelvoorde and Yan Le Gac from the 80’s. This piece of contemporary ballet is delightful and in such contrast in it’s simplicity and poetic innocence and gentleness from today’s fast paced, complex technical dance. Poelvoorde appears so waif like and light as a nymph. I am fascinated by how young she seems and just lovely to watch. Please enjoy and share with your friends.
