MALPASO DANCE COMPANY
A project of Joyce Theater Productions
“This extraordinary troupe of dancers… displays the incredible dance talent and inspired choreography that has become Malpaso’s hallmark.” – Broadwayworld.com
Cuba is known for producing world-class dancers who can do anything from contemporary to classical to capoeira to Afro–Cuban. Malpaso will not disappoint when it makes its Philadelphia debut.
The company will present 24 Hours and a Dog, a response to Grammy-award winning jazz composer Arturo O’Farrill’s theatrical and evocative music. This piece nods to the everyday pedestrian life of a dancer in Havana. The program will also include the Philadelphia premiere of Ronald K. Brown’s Why You Follow, a rousing exploration of the rhythmic pace of Afro-Cuban sounds. This ensemble work evolves from a sensual almost-natal darkness into a rollicking poly-rhythmic house party.
The presentation of Malpaso Dance Company was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
