Portland Ovations presents: Malpaso Dance Company

February 26 @ 7:30 pm

Passionate and precise, Cuba’s Malpaso Dance Company blends their classical training with “lushly earthy modern dance” (Boston Globe) alongside influences of social dances and capoeira. Though their name translates to “misstep,” the 11 dancers of Malpaso are never out of sync. Their Ovations’ program reflects Malpaso’s commitment to both leading international choreographers as well as emerging Cuban voices, featuring Why You Follow, Ron K. Brown’s melding of African and Cuban dance traditions; 24 Hours and a Dog, artistic director Osnel Delgado’s enduring work inspired by dancers’ lives in Havana, set to the Afro-Cuban strains of Arturo O’Farrill and The Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble; and Being (Ser), a brand new piece by company member Beatriz Garcia.
