Recognized as one of Europe's most distinctive choreographers, French-Algerian choregrapher Hervé Koubi and his dance company make their Californian debut this spring with a series of performances in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Irvine. 

The performance, entitled "What the Day owes to the Night" represents the culmination of Hervé Koubi’s artistic search as a choreographer and of his interrogation on both his French and Algerian legacy. Perfectly interpreted by a cast of 12 street male dansers from France, Algeria and Burkina Faso, the performance combines capoeira, martial arts, and urban and contemporary dance in a stunning masterpiece which evokes the powerful imagery of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture on sufi. Therefore, it presents itself as a unique mix of styles and genres, at the frontier between tradition and innovation, North African rhythms and European influences, contemporary and classical music.

The spectacle, described as a "stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet" by The Washington Post, was met with success during the company’s tour in New York. Make sure not to miss the opportunity to experience it yourself during their Californian tour, and book an evening for one of their performances !
