Edouard Hue |  Contemporary

Edouard Hue, a dancer who went through hip hop before joining a contemporary dance course at the Annecy conservatory and subsequently at the Ballet Junior de Genève, is first and foremost a performer who puts his physicality at the service of pure movement. As a performer, he experiments with extremes in choreographers Hofesh Shechter, Damien Jalet and Oliver Dubois and quickly develops a particular “style”, a mixture of controlled virtuosity and mischievous spontaneity. He also received the Swiss Dance Prize 2019 “Exceptional Dancer”.

It is natural that he turns to choreography, which will allow him to benefit from his professional experiences, to satisfy his quest for independence and to develop his own choreographic language.

The Beaver Dam Company / Edouard Hue currently has 6 pieces to its credit (solo, duets, quintet) which tour the world. During his career, he is supported by Pro-Helvetia - Swiss Foundation for Culture, which sets up a mentoring with Olivier Dubois for Meet me halfway. His solo FORWARD is part of the Dance & Dramartugie Program initiated by Philippe Saire - Théâtre Sévelin 36 and he has been artist in residence at the Auditorium Seynod - Scène Régionale Auvergne Rhône-Alpes since 2016.

For 2021, he is preparing to work on two new pieces: Yumé, a young public creation for 4 dancers and All I Need for 9 dancers.

Finally, for several years, Edouard Hue has passed on his work to other companies. This is how the piece Into Outside was transmitted to the Frontier Danceland Company in Singapore as well as to the École de Danse Contemporaine in Montreal. Likewise, the choreographer is regularly asked to create pieces for existing companies and recognized schools. This was the case with the piece Requiem by Yoann Bourgeois for which Edouard Hue created the part of “Domine Jesu” in 2019 and for the Gauthier Dance Company (Stuttgart-Germany) in 2020. He will create for the Basel Ballet (Switzerland) ) in 2022 and the European Higher School SEAD (Salzburg-Austria) in 2021.
