Cie Hervé KOUBI: The Barbarian Nights
May 9, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 pm$54 – $69
Drawing creative strength from his Algerian roots and Mediterranean culture, choreographer Hervé Koubi makes a much-anticipated return to Seattle with his exceptional all-male dance troupe. Combining contemporary and urban dance movements with capoeira and martial arts, this powerful company is known for its arresting imagery and gravity-defying choreography. In the critically acclaimed Les Nuits Barbares (The Barbarian Nights), Koubi takes a deep look into the history of the Mediterranean to extract the truth behind the stereotypes of those who were once considered “barbarians.”
A dazzling blend of gymnastics, modern dance, capoeira, break dancing, and ballet, the work is a feast for the eyes.
