Speaking of Dance Pre-Show Talk with Hervé Koubi and Kaija Pepper
7:15PM each night in the Vancouver Playhouse Upper Lobby
Twelve Algerian and Burkina Faso dancers, mostly coming from street dance and hip-hop, perform in this contemporary dance work that takes its name from an eponymous 2008 novel by Algerian author Yasmina Khadra. Through his dancers, choreographer Hervé Koubi explores his own Algerian origins and journey in a piece that combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance with evocative Islamic imagery.
