YUMÉ

The piece

Beaver Dam Company’s new dance creation brings together children and older ones to experience a performance built around a magical and mysterious story.

Choreographer Edouard Hue drew inspiration from Japanese tales and animated films to create the company’s new dance piece. Yumé is a wordless narration, built around a physical and virtuoso dance, where the characters live a fabulous adventure. The heroine never stops traveling, searching for her lost shadow. During her journey, she encounters strange and fantastic characters. The adventure takes her through amazing lands. Deep in the sea or lost in the clouds, she will discover supernatural places where the laws of nature are upset.
