Drawing creative strength from his Algerian roots and Mediterranean culture, French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi has assembled an exceptional all-male company of Algerian and West African dancers versatile in contemporary, street, and urban dance, capoeira, and martial arts. Following their astounding debut in 2015, the company has since made regular appearances with sold-out performances across the US. Arts Transcending Borders welcomes the return of the company with Barbarian Nights, or the first mornings of the world (Les Nuits Barbares, ou les premiers matins du monde), inviting the audience to revel in Koubis daydream about our common heritage on the shores of the Mediterranean.
With music by Wagner, Mozart, Faure and traditional Algerian music.
