Compagnie Hervé Koubi, Algeria's all-male dance company, makes its Philadelphia debut kicking off NextMove Dance's 2017-18 season with five performances October 12-15, at the Prince Theater, 1412 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA.
The program features the Philadelphia premiere of Ce que le jour doit a la nuit, (What the Day owes to the Night) a full-length 75-minute work that fuses hip hop, contemporary dance and martial arts choreographed by Artistic Director Hervé Koubi. Set to music by Maxine Bodson, Hamza El Din with the Kronos Quartet, Jean Sebastian Bach and Sufi music, the movement vocabulary features over-the-top gravity-defying flips, whirling dervish head-spins, super-human handstands, kicks, falls, catches and lifts interspersed with quieter moments of trance-like reflection.
Performances take place Thursday, October 12 at 7:30pm; Friday, October 13 at 8:00pm; Saturday, October 14 at 2:00pm and 8:00 pm; and Sunday, October 15at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. Tickets are $20-$62 and can be purchased in person at the Prince Theater Box Office, by phone 215-422-4580 or online http://princetheater.org/next-move.
$10 Student tickets and $20 Dance artists' tickets are available one hour prior to show at the Box Office with valid ID, based on availability.
