Hervé Koubi — Choreographer

Compagnie Hervé Koubi

Program notes

Follow the spectacular and singular Compagnie Hervé Koubi throughout a season touring the globe! From New York and Martinique to Israel and France, you'll appreciate this behind-the-scenes look at Koubi's process in creating and bringing his work to the stage, and at the making of the acclaimed What the Day Owes to the Night and Barbarian Nights.

You'll also get to know some of the many people who help realize the choreographer's vision, from his assistant choreographer to the dancers themselves—many of whom were self-taught practitioners of breakdance and hip-hop in Algeria and Burkina Faso before joining Koubi's company, and whose camaraderie offstage helps make them such a cohesive team onstage as they travel the world enchanting audiences with their athleticism and artistry.

This is just one of over a thousand fascinating documentaries available on, the web's leading classical music streaming platform!
