Dance! At The Lyric

Location: Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric, 140 West Mount Royal Avenue

Malambo is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song which originated in the 17th century in the South American pampas.  It evolved from competitive duels amongst the Argentine gaucho (South American cowboy) 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 was born from the heart of the gaucho tradition and is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas.  The Che Malambo company is comprised by Federico Arrua, Fernando Castro, Francisco Ciares, Claudio Diaz, Miguel Flores, Federico Gareis, Albanano Jimenez, Walter Kochanowski, Gonzalo Leiva, Facundo Lencina, Gabriel Lopez, Matias Rivas, Daniel Medina and Jose Palacio.
