Columbus Contemporary Dance Co. presents: For. Now.
The idea that the things around us move us, shape us, push us, force us, create us, break us. But, these things are forever fugacious. Departing, leaving us humbled with only memories. Memories that shape our very existence, our mark, our future, our past. They encompass us, always surrounding us. How we treat these moments
of uncertainty define us. We are tried by our surroundings and have the choice to be better. Let’s leave everyone better than we found them. For Now, we see

DANCECleveland presents Cie Herve Koubi (France)

Cleveland – February 15, 2020, 7:30 pm

Playhouse Square
Performing “What the Day Owes To the Night”, the all-male French company made up of 12 dancers, Cie Herve Koubi, will make their Ohio debut. The performance combines capoeira, martial arts, hip hop, and
contemporary dance and combines the movement with visual depictions of the Eastern world by European artists—and Islamic architecture. Inspired by his father’s deathbed revelation that Koubi’s family originated in Algeria, rather than in France as Koubi had believed, the piece explores Koubi’s newfound roots and depncers for the high energy piece titled, What the Day Owes To the Night which he created in 2013.
