Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

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."

On Friday May 10, join us for a post-show Q&A moderated by Catherine Cole with Hervé Koubi, Fayçal Hamlat and Guillaume Gabriel.

The ENCORE program for this performance is available to READ ONLINE

A dazzling blend of gymnastics, modern dance, capoeira, break dancing, and ballet, the work is a feast for the eyes.
