|Ce que le jour doit à la nuit
A fascinating show whose power, virtuosity and sensuality will captivate you and carry you far, far away …
In a highly acrobatic choreography, 12 breathtakingly talented Algerian and Burkinabe dancers soar, jump, fly and spin to sacred music from East and West.
The late discovery of his roots led French choreographer Hervé Koubi to the source of his own story: to Algeria, the country of his ancestors. Drawing inspiration from Ce que le jour doit à la nuit, a novel by Algerian writer Yasmina Khadra, Koubi communicates to his dancers, his “long-lost brothers,” that magical moment when what we know abstractly takes physical form.
As the dancers interweave movements drawn from hip hop, capoeïra, and African and contemporary dance to a soundtrack featuring oud player Hamza El Din, the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and Sufi music, a unique world emerges where East and West are one.
