Beaver Dam Company at La Scala

Shiver / All I Need from 17 to 28 January 2023 at La Scala, Paris (FR)

Brought to the stage for the first time by Brigitte Lefèvre at the Cannes Dance Festival in 2021, this programme presents the physical and expressive dance of Edouard Hue. The choreographer explores the extremes and transformations of the body. Voted Swiss Dance Award 2019 as “Outstanding Dancer”, he is becoming a highly visible figure in the choreographic landscape.

A powerful programme

The evening opens with the duet Shiver, which was created for the Yokohama Ballet Festival. The piece is a veritable discharge of sensations. Technically highly demanding, the duet unfolds in an uncluttered space that emphasises movement that combines virtuosity and precision.

All I Need, the choreographer’s signature piece, continues the evening. This ballet for 9 dancers vacillates between narrativity and intensity. Edouard Hue delivers a raw dance in a piece inspired by the game of go. All I Need opened the prestigious Epidaurus Festival in Athens, Greece last June.

This evening is a perfect representation of Edouard Hue’s work. Nourished by his career as a dancer in international companies such as Hofesh Shechter, Olivier Dubois and Damien Jalet, he now asserts himself in a choreographic style that combines mastery and spontaneity.
