Compagnie Herve KOUBI “What the Day Owes to the Night”

April 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

“Stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet.” The Washington Post

“Barechested, wearing only white trousers and split skirts that suggest a dervish’s tennure, the dancers stretch, roll, rise. Soon they’re launching themselves into cartwheels, somersaults, backflips, and breakdance headspins, as if they were trying to free the soul from the body.” The Boston Globe

Recognized as one of Europe’s most distinctive choreographers, Hervé Koubi makes his Southern California debut with What the Day Owes to the Night, a highly physical, stunningly fluid work that invokes the complex interwoven threads of his French-Algerian ancestral history. Combining capoeira, urban and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture, 12 French-Algerian and African male dancers appear in a striking contrasts of light and dark, skin and textile and whirling yet chiseled movement to reveal a powerful interpretation of an internal quest.
