El Din

A piece for 12 dancers

>> See the video

«Like an Orientalist from the nineteenth century who has come to Algeria to give life to his dreams of the Orient, I would like to give life to my childhood dreams born in France and who only later discovered his true origins and those of his two parents, algerian in their roots ».

El Din is an intermediary project which paves the way for a meeting and a collaborative project and formation between Hervé Koubi and his 12 new companions of algerian arts.
El Din is inscribed into a franco-algerian project of formation, creation and diffusion and for which the completion is planned for 2012 with the creation of Ce que le jour doit à la nuit, which will be supported with the help of ‘la Cité Internationale de la dentelle et de la Mode de Calais’, the ‘Ballet National du Rhin – Centre Chorégraphique National’, the ‘Région Limousin’, the ‘Département de la Corrèze’, the ‘Ville de Brive-la-Gaillarde’ and the ‘Ville de Cannes’, the French embassy in Algeria ( ‘Service de Coopération et d'Action Culturelle’), the ‘Centre Culturel Français d'Alger’, the ‘Centre Culturel Français d'Oran’, and the ‘Centre Culturel Français d'Annaba’.
Hervé Koubi will accompany the twelve dnacers in the process of formation and creation throughout the time spent in residence, the ‘laboratory’ being spread throughout the years 2010, 2011 and 2012.
