Evoking a million years of history through ballet with EuroArts' latest acquisition from Les Films Figures Libres!
Barbarian Nights © Les Films Figures Libres
„Barbarian Nights“ is the second oeuvre of Hervé Koubi with 12 Algerian and Burkinian dancers, selected on an audition in Algeria in 2009. When Koubi speaks of barbarians it is „in it’s historical sense“, and to remind us that the mediterranean regions were traversed and jolted by different conquerors, coming from the East, or the North or the South – and this created at the time more bonds than opposites, more mixtures than divisions, more marriages than murders. To evoke millions of years of history in a ballet choreography is practically impossible and Koubi passes this with excellence.
