Acclaimed choreographer Hervé Koubi makes his Miami debut with a highly physical, stunningly ﬂuid work for 12 French-Algerian and West African male dancers that combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance. Dressed in white ﬂowing costumes, they exude grace and masculinity amid a backdrop of imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and Islamic architecture. The piece is Koubi’s exploration of and reconnection to his Algerian heritage, set to a musical score that combines Sufi Music and Bach with Nubian composer Hamza El Din.
“A stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet.” — The Washington Post
