Hervé Koubi West Coast Tour
Hervé Koubi, one of Europe's most distinctive and celebrated choreographers, will be touring throughout the United States with his acclaimed dance performance, Ce que le jour doit à la nuit (What the Day Owes the Night).
Twelve French-Algerian and African male dancers, mostly coming from street dance and hip-hop backgrounds, perform a highly physical, stunningly fluid work that combines capoeira, martial arts, and urban and contemporary dance with powerful Sufi imagery.
"There was a mesmerizingly fluid strength in their low-skimming flight and slow tumbling, and whistles were replaced by gasps as one man after another ran up the backs of his fellows to leap or fall backward or to be tossed shockingly high into the air." - Brian Seibert, The New York Times
Hervé Koubi was born in the south of France, and studied dance at the Rosella Hightower school of Dance in Cannes. In 2000, he founded his company when he staged Le Golem.Since then, he has collaborated with a number of talented artists, including Guillaume Gabriel, musician Laetitia Sheriff and filmmakers Max Vadukul and Yoji Yamamoto, among others.
