Drawing creative strength from his Algerian roots and Mediterranean culture, French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi has created a jaw-dropping performance in What the Day Owes to the Night (Ce Que le Jour Doit à la Nuit), packed with backflips, head spins, and a transcending emotional intensity. The all-male cast from Algeria and West Africa share their combined skills in contemporary, street, and urban dance movements, capoeira, and martial arts in a piece that celebrates the power of the body in motion while recognizing the brotherhood of these dancers coming together from different religious and cultural backgrounds. The work is danced to an eclectic score including Johann Sebastian Bach, Hamza El Din & the Kronos Quartet, and traditional Sufi music.
