Edouard Hue, who began with hip hop before joining the contemporary dance program at the Conservatory of Annecy and then the Ballet Junior de Genève, is first and foremost a performer who puts his physicality service of pure movement.
As a performer he has experienced different choreographic extremes with the choreographers Hofesh Shechter, Damien Jalet, Olivier Dubois, rapidly developing his own unique “style”, mixing masterful virtuosity and playful spontaneity. In 2019 he was awarded the Swiss Dance Prize for “Exceptional Dancer”.
He naturally turned to choreography, pulling from his professional experiences, satisfying his hunger for independence and developing his own choreographic language. Throughout his career, he has been supported by Pro-Helvetia – Swiss Foundation for Culture, including their mentoring program with Olivier Dubois for Meet me halfway. His solo FOWARD was part of the Dance and Dramaturgy Program created by Philippe Saire – Théâtre Sévelin 36 and he is resident artist at the Auditorium Seynod – Regional Stage Auvergne Rhône-Alpes since 2016.
The concept of “sensitive virtuosity” best represents Edouard Hue’s choreographic approach. Pure, concise movement that flows with agile dynamism, all the while allowing palpable emotions to emerge – his signature. His relationship to space is also an element that defines him. Making the air vibrate, disturbing the space of the stage, between the performers and the audience, inviting the spectators into the collective trance.
