La Compagnie Hervé Koubi

French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi is recognized as one of Europe’s most distinctive choreographers. His company makes its Seattle debut with What the Day Owes to the Night, a highly physical, stunningly fluid work for 12 French-Algerian and African male dancers that combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture.

“A stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet. Add traditional Sufi music, haze and atmospheric lighting, and what Koubi has created looks deceptively like an ancient desert ritual.” —The Washington Post
