Compagnie Hervé Koubi: What the Day Owes to the Night
April 18, 2017 • 8:00 pm PDT
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.
