No momentum was necessary, as if...there was no such thing as physics--The Washington Post
Hervi Koubi grew up in the South of France where he studied both biology and dance at the University of Aix-en-Provence before graduating as a Pharmaceutical Doctor. After deciding to concentrate on a dancing career and graduating from the world-renowned Rosella Hightower School of Dance in Cannes, Koubi gained professional experience as a dancer with the Opera de Marseille.
Since then, he has developed many contemporary dance projects in collaboration with various artists, writers, choreographers and musicians from the world over. His latest major choreographic work is entitled What the Day Owes to the Night and is inspired by his own personal journey and discovery of his Algerian heritage. His all male cast of dancers has toured extensively around the world before debuting the full length production in the United States in October 2015. Since then it has received numerous standing ovations and acclaim for its incredidlbe physicality, powerful imagery and inspired choreography. Utilizing urban and contemporary dance movements, capoeira, and martial arts to bring the piece to life, dancers literally defy gravity and take the audience's collective breath away.
