About the company:
The Argentine based company, Che Malambo, excites audiences through precise footwork and rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos, 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 gauchos is directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer, Gilles Brinas.
See Che Malambo perform at The Joyce Theater - February 11-16, 2020
The show-stopping, foot-stomping all-male dance company Che Malambo brings rich Argentinian traditions and rigorous dancing to the Joyce stage for an exhilarating show that is perfect for the entire family. A dance form practiced by gauchos, or South American cowboys, Malambo developed in the 17th century from competitive duels that tested agility, strength, and dexterity. Che Malambo brings this thrilling spectacle of percussive dance and music to life as its performers exude “a power and passion that builds into a kind of ecstasy” (The Boston Globe).
