Beaver Dam Company
Festival de Teatro de La Paz
25.abr | 7:30 pm
Teatro Municipal Alberto Saavedra Perez
Drawing inspiration from Japanese tales and animated films, Beaver Dam Company [CH] creates a physical and virtuoso dance in «Yumé». Edouard Hue’s choreography is a wordless narration, where the characters live a fabulous adventure.
The show participates in the 2023 edition of two Bolivian theatre festivals, in Santa Cruz de La Sierra (where Hue also conducts a masterclass) and La Paz.
The piece shows a heroine who 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.
Beaver Dam Company is a Franco-Swiss contemporary dance company created in 2014, directed by the choreographer Edouard Hue. Trained at Ballet Junior de Genève, Hue 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 style, mixing masterful virtuosity and playful spontaneity. The concept of “sensitive virtuosity” best represents 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.
