Program notes

A French choreographer of Algerian descent, born to a Muslim mother and Jewish father, Hervé Koubi has long been fascinated by the historical coming together and coming apart of different groups, and the different vantage points from which history books have been written. In Les Nuits barbares, ou les premiers matins du monde (Barbarian Nights, or The First Mornings of the World), Koubi’s choreography questions the notion of “barbarism” while recounting the cultural history of the Mediterranean and the cycles of invasion and assimilation imposed on its peoples from within and without.
