Bandshell

Compagnie Hervé KOUBI

Saturday, July 27 , 8 pm – 10 pm, 2019
2019-07-27T00:00:00-04:00
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Compagnie Hervé KOUBI will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi brings his signature work to the Bandshell with Compagnie Hervé KOUBI: the muscular and astonishingly kinetic evening-length What The Day Owes To The Night. The piece, bristling with energy and powerful images that evoke Orientalist paintings and Islamic architecture, features 12 French-Algerian and African dancers and combines capoeira, martial arts, hip hop, and contemporary styles.

Hervé Koubi started his studies in dance in Cannes, where he was born, with Michele and Anne-Marie Sanguin and Nathalie Crimi (co-founders of Espace 614 at Mouans-Sartoux). Koubi grew up unaware of his Algerian heritage; learning about it at age 25 from his father on his deathbed sent him on a personal and artistic journey. Made up of dancers primarily from North Africa with street dance backgrounds, Compagnie Hervé Koubi is the result of that journey.

For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
