Bringing a little slice of Havana to the Barclay!

Embodying the passion that defines Cuban life and its rich dance tradition, Malpaso Dance Company has become one of Cuba’s most sought-after dance companies. The company emphasizes a collaborative creative process by working with top international choreographers while also nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography.

With a program that includes Indomitable Waltz by acclaimed Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton and Face the Torrent, a new work by NY choreographer Sonya Tayeh (So You Think You Can Dance), Malpaso Dance Company is steeped in driving Latin grooves and inspired sensual choreography that has taken the American dance world by storm.

"[Mr. Delgado's] finely kneaded movement, which almost makes you want to grab it in fistfuls, buoys into and out of the ground with delectable ease."   (The New York Times)

Part of 2018-2019 Contemporary Dance Series
