Les Heures Florissantes

Choreographic proposal for 17 to 120 dancers
'Déambulatoire' with an installation
Duration: 45 minutes

>> See the video (The video was taken during a collaborative work with the agglomeration of Boulonnais within the structure of the 'Contrat Local d’Education Artistique 2009' ).

A choreographic work by Hervé KOUBI in partnership with the dancers of ‘Cannes Jeune Ballet of the ‘Centre International de Danse de Cannes Rosella Hightower Direction Monique Loudières’.

Number of dancers: Between 7 and 45 dancers depending on the possibilities of space.
This show can equally be created through working with 6 professional dancers and some amateur dancers from the town or the region which hosts the performance. ‘Les Heures Florissantes’ therefore becomes a creation formed by an exchange between the experiences of amateurs and professionals.
In this case Hervé KOUBI and Guillaume GABRIEL at first meet with the amateur dancers during a week-end course in order to work on the choreography present in the show.


  • Choreography: Hervé KOUBI
    Costumes: Guillaume GABRIEL
    Music: Sallinen and Arvo Pärt by the Kronos Quartett, Philip Glass, Foday Musa Suso, Vivaldi, Gorecki
