Bejart gives spirit to Beiteddine
French choreographer uses global palette to explore Mother Teresa’s altruism

If what gives dance, both modern and ballet, its most visceral pleasure is the dancers ­ their athleticism evidence of what perfection the human body is capable of and their grace a sublime, physical representation of the music itself ­ then Maurice Bejart is a master of the dance.
As famed 20th-century ballet choreographer George Balanchine blew the dust off traditional ballet, Bejart, the 76-year-old French-born and oft-criticized choreographer, continues to blow the dust off his amalgam of ballet and modern dance in 2003.

At Beiteddine for the opening of the annual summer Festival on Thursday night, Bejart presented his newest project, La Compagnie M, in a one-hour-20-minute performance entitled Mother Teresa and the Children of the World.
Comprising 15 young dancers, graduates of Bejart’s Ecole-Atelier Rudra, alongside the world-renowned ballerina and former artistic director of Stuttgart Ballet, Marcia Haydee, the performance is an exploration in dance of the life and work of Mother Teresa.
