Event Description

The powerhouse, all-male, Argentinian dance company, Che Malambo, excites audiences with their percussive dance and music spectacle. Since its premiere in Paris in 2007, Che Malambo has performed around the world awing audiences with their dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song. Paris-based Gilles Brinas first learned about Malambo while researching traditional dances. He soon fell under its spell and traveled to the Pampas region of Argentina to engage with the gaucho and further his exploration of their traditions.

Inspired by the dance and the talent of its exponents, Brinas created Che Malambo so as to share this powerful, passionate form with international audiences. Capturing the spirit of the gaucho (South American cowboy) Brinas has choreographed a full evening work evoking agility, strength and dexterity, all characteristics that make up the heart of Che Malambo. The fast-paced footwork and whirling boleadoras will excite audiences and transport them into a world of rhythmic dance! Co-presented by DANCECleveland & Tri-C.
