Edouard Hue is a dancer, choreographer and teacher who worked with the Ballet Junior de Genève before becoming a performer for the choreographers Hofesh Shechter, Damien Jalet and Oliver Dubois. In 2014, he created the Beaver Dam Company in order to satisfy his quest for independence and develop his own choreographic language. The company tours internationally and, alongside its artistic creations, offers training and educational activities oriented towards a broad audience. In 2019, Edouard received the Swiss Dance Prize, establishing him as an ‘Exceptional Dancer’. He will present the World Premiere of his latest creation at the Festival de Danse de Cannes on Saturday 11 December at the Théâtre La Licorne.

She has had an eclectic career as a dancer, crossing the worlds of contemporary dance, music hall, theatre, performance and electronic music. She created her company in 2009 after various personal works exploring territories between dance and plastic arts. Since 2018, she has been involved in a series of creations surrounding the question of costume and clothing, their history and their imprint on the body. Notably, Balkis Moutashar carried out an educational residency at the Lycée Jules Ferry in Cannes between September 2020 and April 2021 – connecting with more than 170 students by offering them a journey of discovery into the art of choreography.
