In the scope of his activities as a choreographer of a professional dance company in Brive, Hervé Koubi would like to share his encounters, his artistic choices and his teachings with the young dancers-in-training of the town in which they live.
As well as courses and open warm-up sessions, punctual training, public rehearsals or dance conferences, the company would like to offer to those students showing potential the classical option of the conservatory, the possibility to be involved in the creative work of the company and notably to share, around the same project, the realities of the creative process with the professional dancers in the company.
Since 2010 Hervé Koubi has worked with a male-only troupe of Algerian dancers. The idea behind this shared work is to merge two teams around two complimentary universes: the universe of hip-hop dancers, along with that of young classically and technically trained contemporary dancers.
Often victorious, but so hard and sometimes unjust…
A winter when the family and the homeland are so very much missed…
Yes, right in mid-winter, in imitation of the flowers and the butterflies from milder days, they are all present- like lights in the obscurity.
Thus a summer, in the middle of the winter…
They will cause us to remember that the marriage between the two shores of the Mediterranean is filled with beauty in the image of the lace-lined ceilings and the hanging gardens of Alhambra Palace in Grenada.
Hanging, yes, like their arms, their feet, with their fine and graceful gestures at the end of their powerful limbs.
But dance is a story before all else and expresses a logic that words cannot totally define, posing this question so exquisite and unexpected: who truthfully supports who?
Faith, fraternalism and passion are never very far away. But it is most likely, and especially, a question of humanity.
