Event Description

EASTMAN PRESENTS

Che Malambo

“The men dance with a power and passion that builds into a kind of ecstasy, after teasing us with their fierce solemnity…” (Boston Globe).

The Argentine based company, Che Malambo, excites audiences through precise footwork and rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos, and singing and whirling boleadoras (lassos with stones on the end). Presenting a thrilling, percussive dance and music spectacle, the company’s work celebrates the unique South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho. This powerhouse all-male company of 14 gauchos is directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer, Gilles Brinas. Che Malambo brings fiery Malambo traditions and virtuosic dancing to the contemporary stage for an exhilarating and entertaining show that is perfect for the entire family. Danced solely by men, the Malambo began in the 17th century as competitive duels that would challenge skills of agility, strength, and dexterity. Zapeteo, their fast-paced footwork, is inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses in their native Argentina.

 

This performance is also part of the Barbara B. Smith World Music Series.
