The French-Algerian dance company Hervé KOUBI will debut on Hawaii Island at Kahilu Theatre on April 1, at 7 p.m. and April 2, at 4 p.m. with an electrifying performance of What the Day Owes to the Night.

The sixty-minute dance presentation features 12 Algerian and African male dancers blending capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance, and ballet. The Washington Post’s Rebecca Ritzel describes the show as “a stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet.”

Over the last 10 years, French choreographer Hervé Koubi has made a name for himself as one of Europe’s most distinctive choreographers. His dance company has toured extensively throughout Europe and Russia.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the performance on April 1, and at 3 p.m. for the performance on April 2. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase at the Kahilu Theatre bar.
