Highlights: Dive

If you’re a fan of dance, you’re in luck! The world of dance is being rocked yet again by renowned choreographer Edouard Hue, who received widespread praise for his most recent string of dazzling performances. Having dazzled audiences at La Scala in January 2023 with his groundbreaking shows Shiver and All I Need, Edouard Hue continues to leave a legacy of greatness on the world of dance with choreography that constantly innovates and challenges preconceptions. This time, allow us to introduce you to his latest choreographic work, Dive, which is set to return once more to the enchanting stage of La Scala.


Hue’s most recent creation plunges deeply and desperately into an exploration of human existence, with an intimate narrative that borders on the autobiographical. His harmonious choreography encourages its spectator to question the origins of intuition and its role in how we make choices, as communicated by seven dancers and their excellent command of physical power, technical accuracy, and form. Ensconce yourself in a performance that provokes self-reflection and seeks to question the values we hold at our very core, all through the interpretive art of dance.

Story: Dive

Guided and informed by the theme of primal human instinct, Edouard Hue’s ballet Dive takes to the stage of La Scala in Paris to explore the human spirit in all of its divine complexity. Dive sweeps its captive audience into a whirlwind of profound emotion, juggling moments of brutality with bursts of intimacy, thrusting its spectator into a captivating limbo.


In addition to his own creations alongside the Beaver Dam Company, Edouard Hue’s __ talent is shared internationally through his collaboration with other groups such as Ballet Theater Basel in Switzerland and Opéra Grand Avignon in France. Since 2021, Edouard Hue has made a name for himself as a leading figure in the European choreography and ballet scene. His work is unanimously praised by critics and dance-lovers alike, and his unparalleled understanding of form and movement continues to move and amaze fans and dancers alike across the globe. Of course, words can’t truly do this incredibly visual show justice - you have to see it for yourself. Try it out!

La Scala

Wedged between hair salons and trendy vintage stores in Paris’ 10th Arrondissement, La Scala is a newly renovated “café-concert hall” hosting a wide variety of entertainment, including theatre, dance, concerts, and circus performances. Once the first major English-style music halls in France, now remade with state of the art modular technology, the venue has undergone multiple makeovers since it first opened its doors in 1873. It made its humble debut as a Parisian guinguette, an intimate meeting place for drinking and dancing, but later evolved into a concert hall, theatre venue, and finally an art deco cinema. Perhaps the strangest chapter of La Scala’s history came in 1999, when it was purchased by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, who envisioned the venue as a meeting place for a religious cult. However, its neighbours protested, and Paris’ city council refused to give the church permission for its plans. La Scala was closed, lying derelict for 16 years.  


However, this changed in 2016 when the space was purchased by a pair of seasoned theatre producers. They transformed the space into a 550-seat modular theatre with technology to support the full range of performances they imagined for the space. Both its auditorium and restaurant feature designs from scenographer Richard Peduzzi, the man behind the Milan Scala, an opera house which has hosted nearly every great Italian opera singer since 1778. Inspired by this long heritage, Paris’ own imitation is now a gem of the city’s theatre scene with an impressively diverse programme of shows.
