The Dance House presents their upcoming performances featuring French Compagnie Herve Koubi.
Twelve Algerian and Burkina Faso dancers, mostly coming from street dance and hip-hop, perform in this contemporary dance work that takes its name from an eponymous 2008 novel by Algerian author Yasmina Khadra. Through his dancers, choreographer Hervé Koubi explores his own Algerian origins and journey in a piece that combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance with evocative Islamic imagery.
