La Compagnie Hervé Koubi

  • The Choreographer: Hervé Koubi, who studied pharmacology and clinical biology but gave it up to pursue dance and study at Cannes
  • The Piece: Ce que le jour doit à la nuit (What the Day Owes the Night), an exploration of Koubi’s Algerian roots that draws upon Orientalist paintings and Islamic architecture
  • The Dancers: 12 men from Algeria and Burkina Faso who practice an extraordinarily physical style of urban and contemporary dance. When they’re on stage, expect to see flips, head spins, and sentient organic matter.
  • The Music: Koubi draws upon a whole world of music, interspersing works by Bach and the Kronos Quartet with traditional Sufi music.
  • The Praise: The Washington Post calls the piece a “stunning fusion of acrobatics, gymnastics, b-boying, modern dance and ballet.”

Society for Performing Arts

Jesse H. Jones, a businessman, philanthropist, and member of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's cabinet, knew what he wanted for Houston: more art. Before his death in 1956, Jones set in motion a plan to create a new cultural center for the city, and under the leadership of his nephew John, the Jones Hall became a reality. To keep the ushers from getting lonely on nights when the Houston Symphony and Houston Grand Opera weren't playing the younger Jones created the Society for Performing Arts.

The SPA brought Carol Channing to Jones Hall in its first season and later grew to be the largest such arts organization in the southwest. It's even expanded from its majestic flagship venue to fill another pair of theaters a couple of blocks away.
