Feb 2

LT Pick

Choreographed by Hervé Koubi, What the Day Owes to The Night is a highly physical, stunningly fluid 65-minute work defying gravity for 13 all-male virtuoso dancers from Algeria and Morocco. What the Day Owes to The Night combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and stone filigree of Islamic architecture. Its music is a combination of sufi sounds interpreted by The Kronos Quartet, music by Hamza El Din from Egypt and excerpts of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Passion.
Student performances are available at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Feb. 1 (call for details).
