Movement of astonishing strength and beauty
French dancemaker Hervé Koubi was an adult when his father revealed that his family had originated in Algeria―leading to an artistic exploration of his newfound North African roots. What followed was an inspiring and magnetic work, What the Day Owes to the Night. For the company’s Spoleto Festival USA debut, 13 male dancers from Africa and Europe blend street forms, like capoeira, breakdancing, and martial arts, with that of modern contemporary dance to create powerful sequences punctuated with explosive feats.
