In exploring the need to belong to a micro-group, Into Outside wishes to reveal the importance of the individual to society and the power of society to change it. Every individual constitutes society and nourishes it. Conversely, society influences every being, its character, its role and its needs within this society.
Into Outside addresses the changes in character and behaviour induced by community life, through the needs of dominance, affiliation or exhibition, as well as the place and role of everyone, its unique value within the group.
Choreographer Edouard Hue also decides to use the pyramid of Maslow as a directive element in the piece. It represents a theory of motivation established through psychologist Abraham Maslow’s observations in the 1940’s, and classifies the individual’s needs in five tiers, by order of importance.
