All I Need

The piece

Desperate rush towards self-fulfillment by trying to avoid total confrontation, All I Need is also and above all the affirmation of a fundamental need of humanity, that of collective and reasoned listening.

Edouard Hue immersing his nine female and male dancers in a structure reminiscent of the game of go where the conquest of territory only makes sense by finding a compromise of balance with his opponent.  He invents a complex and exciting strategic ballet. The characters, inspired by current political figures, are characterized by singular movements and carried away by a qualitative quality of movement.

Their bodies, on the verge of breaking, overflow with drunken energy of power, vibrate with impatience, seething with anger. The density of space electrifies, movement borders on implosion. Or suddenly relaxes in an elastic blast. In All I Need, Edouard Hue puts forward all his know-how to create an intense and virtuoso dance. Will our protagonists find a way out? Will chaos give way to a lull to rebuild harmony?

Press release

``The whole exudes vivacity, virtuosity, associating figures, postures, contemporary codes with passion, emotion, beauty. We are captivated, charmed, carried away. Besides, the public, rather young and frankly enthusiastic, demanded three encores.``

Catherine Schwaab, Paris Match

“(…) the performance has a totally assumed political tone. And it is galvanizing. Edouard Hue therefore succeeds in his transformation, that of a fully assumed choreographer playing with codes and styles. ``
Ouvert aux publics
``Drunk, bubbling, impetuous, made of rupture, eminently political, the choreographer's writing electrifies, hyptnotizes. ``

L’Oeil d’Olivier

``Edouard Hue and the Beaver Dam Company end their serie at La Scala on Friday and Saturday. It cant be missed!``

Online Merker
«In the creative impulse of this uncompromising youth, there is incontestably a generational phenomenon, (…), something important is happening, a reflection of the world moved by a terribly sharpened lucidity. It is to be seen, immediately. »
