“A stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance, and ballet.”—Washington Post

Full-force street dance meets bare sparsity in Compagnie Hervé Koubi’s Ce Que le Jour Doit à la Nuit (What the Day Owes to the Night). The all-male French-Algerian and Burkina Faso company’s abstract athleticism and hip-hop sensibility ignite elements of capoeira, martial arts, and contemporary dance. Koubi’s stark lighting and minimalist design frame the dancers’ impossible feats of headspinning spectacle with clarity as the story of Koubi’s entangled biography unfolds on stage. Koubi sets his piece to music ranging from traditional Sufi compositions to Johann Sebastian Bach.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
