Hervé Koubi, fondatorul, împreună cu Guillaume Gabriel, al Companiei Hervé Koubi, a descoperit, la 25 de ani, că are rădăcini în Algeria. De atunci a creat, împreună cu colaboratorii săi apropiați și cei 12 dansatori, pe care îi numește „frații lui găsiți”, mai multe spectacole care îmbină acrobația, gimnastica, artele marțiale braziliene, break-dance-ul, hip-hop-ul, dansul modern și baletul clasic. Lecția deschisă își propunere să ofere o introducere în universul de mișcări al spectacolului „Ceea ce ziua datorează nopții”.
When I was young, before I discovered the Art of Dance and became fully devoted to it, I was fascinated by drawing. Today I keep this same preoccupation in what I call, in my work, my taste for the construction of the gesture and its setting in space. Where I leave, where I am going, what will be my path… I probably kept this unspeakable taste to leave the trace of the artistic gesture coupled with a concern that heart, the relationship to time.
“To create the choreographic material by defining the frameworks of an issue where space and time would be the tools, where the danced movement would be the thread, where the choreographic construction would be an entanglement, the complex weaving leading to a work comparable to that of a lace: a score. My milestones are thus posed for this transposition, better still this dematerialization of this object called art, into a movement danced by definition ephemeral. A dematerialization which in a paradoxical way gives all the material to the dance.” – Hervé Koubi, Working Notes
