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.
