Hervé Koubi created this highly physical, stunningly fluid work after traveling to Algeria to find his North African roots. Combining capoeira (Afro-Brazilian martial arts), urban and contemporary dance with powerful lighting, imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture, What the day owes to the night is a cultural, emotional experience set in the desert and sunlight of North Africa.

This company not only exhibits artistic excellence but also cultural relevance!” TITAS DALLAS
