Che Malambo

Saturday, March 7, 2020

The heart-throbbing world of malambo comes alive in this brand new production! Inspired by the precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song of the gaucho (South American cowboy), renowned choreographer Gilles Brinas transforms Malambo’s origin as a test of agility, strength and dexterity into a sexy and spectacular stage performance. Witness these cultural rituals come to life through zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses; the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos; and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords weighted with stones. Che Malambo’s all-male dance company is an exhilarating way to heat up a Saturday night!
