An extraordinary whirlwind of movement blending contemporary and urban dance with martial arts.

What The Day Owes To The Night features a highly physical, stunningly fluid, gravity-defying piece that combines capoeira, martial arts, urban, and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture. Through its mystical, enchanting, and hypnotic choreography, French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi retraces his own history by relating it to the story of a young boy from a novel by Yasmina Khadra.

The all-male cast of 13 virtuoso dancers from Algeria and Morocco will dance to a combination of sufi sounds recorded by Kronos Quartet, music by Hamza El Din from Egypt, and excerpts of Johan Sebastian Bach’s Passion: a cultural experience!
