Combining strength, form and athleticism, 12 male dancers from across the Mediterranean Basin form spirals in fluid patterns of Sufi whirling, breakdancing, ballet, and gymnastics that seem to defy physics.

Acclaimed French-Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi has crafted a distinct style of movement, one that fuses extraordinary athleticism and acrobatic skill with contemporary dance, physical theatre, warrior culture and capoeira.

A deeply personal exploration of human migration and different cultures at the crossroads of east and west, What the Day Owes to the Night is at once beautiful, impossible, astonishing, and even dangerous.

With a score mixing Bach, Sufi rhythms and Egyptian influences, the dancers’ composition unfolds like an ancient desert ritual. Performed over 300 times worldwide, this is the Australian premiere and only chance to see award-winning Hervé Koubi's most iconic creation.
