Compagnie Hervé Koubi  |  October 12-15  

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

“Mystifies audiences at the dual display of gymnastics and grace unlike anything in Western dance.”—The Washington Post

Making its Philadelphia debut, this Algerian troupe of 12 extraordinarily talented male dancers performs Artistic Director Hervé Koubi’s Ce que le jour doit a la nuit (What the day owes to the night).  First Prize winner of the International Dance Festival (Algiers), this full-length work is filled with evocative imagery based on Asian paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture, making a powerful statement while bridging cultures and dance genres.  Set to music of Maxim Bodson, Hamza El Din par Kronos Quartet, Bach and Sufi music, Ce Que is part spectacle and part ritual with dancers twirling like Dervishes or head spinning like b-boys as they defy physics and gravity.
