All I Need

The piece

The phrase, far from being new, nevertheless takes on its full meaning in our recent news, where profitability dominates, where extremist and nationalist parties are gaining momentum, where society promotes competition for personal power. Is it possible to change direction before the irremediable tear of the community? This is the question that agitates Edouard Hue’s choreography, All I Need. 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. 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. Will our protagonists find a way out? Will chaos give way to a lull to rebuild harmony?

Press release

“(…) 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. ``
