Cie Hervé Koubi

Jan 27, 2022

We are both saddened and disappointed to learn that the State Department did not grant Cie Hervé Koubi a visa for their North American tour. As such, the performance for Thursday, January 27, 2022 has been cancelled.

Beginning January 26, all ticket purchasers will automatically receive a full refund for their order, credited back to the original payment method. This process may take up to two weeks to complete.  

We know you were as excited to see this performance as we were and if possible, we will try to secure an alternate future date for this performance. Any rescheduled dates will likely be announced in mid-May of 2022. 

Recognized as one of Europe's most distinctive choreographers, Hervé Koubi will make his Fort Collins debut with a highly physical, stunningly fluid work for an all male troupe of dancers from North Africa and the Mediterranean basin. This gravity-defying, jaw-dropping style combines capoeira, martial arts, acrobatics, riurban and contemporary dance with powerful imagery evocative of Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture.

“Caught between Algeria and France, in Dance...The thirteen men in the Compagnie Hervé Koubi...spin on one arm, then switch to the other. They dive horizontally and flip over in midair, like a pancake being flipped on a griddle, or up and up, drawing a steep and elegant arc…Each time it happens, you feel like you’re falling too. The movement is not only exciting but beautiful. The men look like figures in an etching by William Blake, like falling angels or Icarus after flapping his wings too close to the sun.” —The New Yorker

“A stunning jaw dropping fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance, and ballet...Traditional Sufi music, atmospheric fog and lighting create an ancient desert ritual." —The Washington Post
