Cuban dance troupe Malpaso Dance Company is being hosted by UW World Series this week, with three performances at Meany Hall in their first US tour. UW World Series is passionate about bringing worldwide artists and musicians to Seattle, and this critically-acclaimed group is sure to dazzle audiences with several new works.
From the website:
Founded in 2013 under the artistic direction of Osnel Delgado, Malpaso Dance Company expresses the passion and uncertainties that define Cuban life and are embodied in the country’s rich dance tradition. Touring the U.S. for the first time, the company exhibits its trademark fresh contemporary spirit in a program that includes 24 hours and a dog, a new contemporary dance piece by Delgado set to live music by 2015 Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble. Also on the program is Osnel Delgado’s Ocaso and Porque Sigues (Why You Follow) by Ronald K. Brown, which features the Brown’s blend of African, Cuban and Western dance.
Tickets start at $43 and can be purchased at the UW World Series website.
