Geneva-based Beaver Dam Company presents a double bill with FORWARD and Into Outside. Multi award-winning choreographer, Edouard Hue is known for his virtuosity of movement, combining both urban and contemporary styles.

Into Outside explores the need to belong to a micro-group, and the importance of the individual to society. What is it about different communities that change our characters and behaviours? The dancers interact through the needs of dominance, affiliation or exhibition, striving to find the place and role of everyone and their unique value within the group.

FORWARD incarnates the perpetual struggle of the being, faced with the search for ways to evolve and change. The dancer is overwhelmed with the desire to keep moving forwards – an obsession brought to life through the body. Finding himself in unstable surroundings, the dancer is torn between his different emotions. An internal battle for each step forwards.

Both works express a wild instinctiveness presented through precise, demanding movement.

*Please not that the performance contains some strobe lighting.
