The powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company Che Malambo excites audiences with a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song that originated in the 17th century in the South American pampas. It evolved from competitive duels among the Argentinian gauchos (South American cowboys) that tested agility, strength, and dexterity. It soon evolved to include what is now its hallmark, zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones. Che Malambo is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas.
After selling out its stunning performances last year, Compagnie Hervé Koubi returns with its highly physical, fluid work that combines hip-hop, and contemporary dance with powerful Sufi imagery.

The internationally renowned repertory company Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, or BJM, defies categories with its blend of hip, funky moves infused with infectious energy, humor, and imagination. Led by artistic director Louis Robitaille, BJM presents the Boston premiere of O Balcão de Amor by choreographer Itzik Galili, inspired by Pérez Prado's classic Cuban mambo music. The energetic and sensual piece is infused with comedic sparks and charming absurdity that aims to return us to our youth with all its hopes and dreams. The company will also perform other works from its vast repertoire.
