This is an event between Jaquet Droz and Béjart Ballet Lausanne. Watchmaking and ballet also have deep historical accumulation and a commitment to the future, and also give intoxicating charm to the present time.
Some collaborations are even more rare, for example, a passionate avant-garde watchmaker and an extraordinary artist each share a unique perspective on life, rich history and a bright future.
Now Jacques Dro, the exclusive ‘Performance Partner’ of the Lausanne Bega Ballet in Switzerland, fulfills his promise with action. This watchmaking brand between La Chaux-de-Fonds and the dance group Maurice Béjart, a well-known ballet dancer who inherits the essence of art, is not a relationship of traditional art sponsorship, but two fields of art that pursue perfection and precision. Intersection and integration between the two. This is a creative collision flashing with wisdom. It is a sympathy between two great artists. They have a passion for dynamics. They regard time as an invaluable treasure. They have a deep understanding of the countless fleeting precious moments. Eternal beauty.
One is dance wizard Maurice Béjart, who is a loyal guardian of contemporary dance art. Born in Marseille, France in 1927, he died in 2007 and is known as a ‘legend’ in the dance world. He has a free and active mind and a broad vision. He started his ballet career in Paris, France in 1946, and has lived in Brussels, Belgium for 30 years, creating many famous twentieth-century ballets. He then moved to Switzerland, introducing a revolutionary and lively performance method to Switzerland, and in 1987 established the Lausanne Bega Ballet. He has led dance groups touring around the world, traveling throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East and even the United States. He pursues perfection in his stage performance. His works, such as the famous ‘Sacre du printemps’ (1959), ‘Symphonie pour un homme seul’, and ‘Oiseau de feu’, have become the models of contemporary ballet, and nowadays by Gil Roman It was carried forward with the dancers of the Lausanne Bega Ballet.
The other is a legend of another era. Born in 1721 in the Jura region of Switzerland, Pierre Jaquet-Droz was one of the talented watchmakers of the Enlightenment. He is an outstanding technician, an unparalleled businessman, and a veritable artist. He is good at understanding and even predicting the tastes and needs of male and female customers of the same era. His clockwork, musical timepieces, crafts and automatic dolls conquered the royal courts of European countries. Today, Marc Alexander Hayek, the president of Jacques Dro, has a unique vision, which not only rejuvenates the brand, but also strengthens the brand’s ambition that has remained unchanged since its inception: with superb watchmaking technology and exquisite decorative arts, Makes time shine.
The encounter between watchmaking and ballet is also an amazing time journey. Through centuries of time, the two harmonious and common philosophies are fused together. On the one hand, it is the control of the limbs, the perfect and precise dance movement, and the instant burst of creativity, originality and courage. On the other hand, it is Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s ‘surprising surprise’, ‘amazing harmony and unity’, and the unremitting pursuit of ‘perfect and outstanding’. For Maurice Béjart and Pierre Jaquet-Droz, this keen sensibility for the beauty of ultimate harmony is always with perseverance and perseverance beyond limits Linked together. Dancers must be strict with themselves and diligent in training, as well as watchmakers. The former constantly designs and changes complex dance movements, while the latter strives to create clever clock parts. It also requires perseverance and persistence in faith.
Jaquet Droz and Lausanne Bega Ballet are not far from each other geographically. They are located in the beautiful hinterland of Switzerland. Therefore, it is necessary to understand each other better to understand the reason why the two attract each other. Maurice Béjart is a veritable limb magician. Throughout her long dance career, her body movements have demonstrated shocking artistic tension. This is in line with the work of Pierre Jaquet-Droz. The designed automatic puppets ‘Musician’, ‘Painter’ and ‘Writer’ have the same effect. The three automatic puppets are exquisitely made, raised their hands and smiled, all of which are lifelike and amazing. All timepieces produced by Jaquet Droz are infused with ingenious design and exquisite craftsmanship, just like the famous The BirdRepeater watch and The CharmingBird watch. The mechanical bird sings softly, flutters, and comes alive.
The partnership between Jaquet Droz and the Lausanne Bega Ballet also reflects that they share the same heritage and are committed to accumulating history and traditions and carrying them forward in a vibrant and vivid way from generation to generation. In La Chaux-de-Fonds, Montres Jaquet Droz SA founded the Le Ateliers d’Art. While carefully protecting the exclusive craftsmanship, it also integrates 21st century modern technology, just like Pierre What Pierre Jaquet-Droz did in the eighteenth century. In Lausanne, Gil Roman became the heir to Maurice Béjart’s dance art. The passionate dancer started to dance at the age of 7, and followed Maurice Béjart in the 1980s, starring in ‘Pyramide’, ‘LeMandarin merveilleux’, ‘La Route de la soie’, ‘Dibouk’ ‘And other repertoire. For this outstanding artist and dance design, how to inherit the essence of Maurice Béjart’s dance art is indeed a difficult challenge, because dance movements are like flowing clouds, and it is difficult to ‘record’ them in archives. In. However, in each interpretation of Maurice Béjart’s works of art, the Lausanne Bega Ballet is able to freeze its ‘artistic essence’ at an instant, thereby demonstrating its moving artistic charm. Jaquet Droz and the Lausanne Bega Ballet know that time is never gone. Instead of trying to prevent time from moving forward, it is better to use wisdom and ingenuity in your own way in the passage of time. Make wonderful moments an eternal legend.
The new partnership between the two is based on the glorious past and a bright future, and coincides with the artistic concept of Maurice Béjart, just as he called it ‘Un instant dans la According to the memoir of ‘vie d’autrui’: ‘Beyond the times, it can bring joy to achieve dreams.’
