MALPASO DANCE COMPANY

"With joints like liquid, they seem to float on and off stage without a single sound. But like most ballerinas, the articulation through their limbs was precise as a puzzle." – Pittsburgh Examiner

From Havana to Jackson Hole, this international sensation will take The Center Stage in a sizzling performance. Malpaso is a passionate dance ensemble that blends contemporary dance with unparalleled versatility and Cuban expression, collaborating with the world's best choreographers while nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography. This program features works by celebrated choreographers Aszure Barton and Ohad Naharan in addition to works by Malpaso Artistic Director Osnel Delgado and Malpaso Dancer Beatriz Garcia.

SATURDAY, JULY 20

8PM

"Malpaso's aim is to bring 'Cuban contemporary dance into the 21st century.' Clearly, they have already arrived." — Pittsburg Examiner
