MALPASO

February 19, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center

Hailing from Cuba, Malpaso is a passionate contemporary dance ensemble that embodies the rich culture of Havana. Under the leadership of choreographer and artistic director Osnel Delgado, the company works to bring Cuban contemporary dance into the 21st century by collaborating with top international choreographers and nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography.

Following Malpaso’s critically acclaimed international debut at The Joyce Theater in 2014, Malpaso continues to take the American dance world by storm. This ever-exciting ensemble makes its Chicago debut on the Dance Center stage with Indomitable Waltz, a new work by one of the world’s most in-demand choreographers, Aszure Barton. As Rebecca Gross observed for NEA Arts Magazine: “Watching the choreography of Aszure Barton is like watching the physical unfurling of the human psyche.”  The company will also perform the critically acclaimed 24 Hours and a Dog, by Osnel Delgado. Malpaso Dance Company is an Associate Company of Joyce Theater Productions.
