About this show

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.
