Hervé Koubi's Most Recent Work Comes to UC San Diego
The French choreographer's Ce Que Le Jour Doit A La Nuit fuses capoeria with street dance
Drawing inspiration from his Algerian and Mediterranean roots, celebrated French choreographer Hervé Koubi brings his most recent work, Ce Que le Jour Doit à la Nuit (What the Day Owes to the Night), to UC San Diego’s Mandeville Auditorium this month.
The physically demanding routine sees his 12-person troupe fusing capoeira—the Afro-Brazilian dance/martial art hybrid—with contemporary street styles, backflips, and head spins set to a mix of Bach, Nubian composer Hamza El Din, and traditional Sufi music. Following the show, stick around for an ArtTalk with the performers.
January 17, Mandeville Auditorium, La Jolla
