March 25-26 Cie Hervé KOUBI

Bold, masculine and exciting barely begin to describe Hervé KOUBI. Drawing from his Algerian roots, Hervé KOUBI’s work What the Day Owes to the Night, combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contempo- rary dance. With powerful and breathtaking imagery, this group of 12 male Algerian and West African dancers defy gravity. Fed by Orientalist paintings and the stone filigree of Islamic architecture, KOUBI traces his own path made of entanglements: a complex weave. Cie Hervé KOUBI is part of the TITAS Presents 2015/2016 season. March 25–26, 2015 at 8:00 pm at the City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora St., Dallas, TX 75201. 214-880-0202.

March 25-27 Cinderella

In an enchanting race against the clock, Texas Ballet Theater brings Ben Stevenson’s retelling of the beloved fairy tale of Cinderella vibrant- ly to life. Fabulous frocks, stepsibling rivalry and the most coveted shoe of all time provide pageantry that enthralls audiences of all ages. The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra accompanies the performance playing the work of composer Sergei Prokofiev. March 25, 2016 at 8:00 pm, March 26 at 2:00 & 8:00 pm and March 27 at 2:00 & 7:00 pm at Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St, Fort Worth, TX 76102. $20-$98.50. 817-212-4280.
