    Che Malambo

    Created by renowned choreographer Gilles Brinas, this show is a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song, Malambo is at the heart of the gaucho (South American cowboy) tradition. It began in the 17th century as competitive duels that tested skills of agility, strength and dexterity among the gaucho. It soon evolved to include its hallmark, zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. In addition, Malambo features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones.

    This PEAK performance is made possible by a grant from the MLDauray Arts Initiative in honor of Leonard and Sophie Davis. Attendees are invited to Beyond the Stage, a free pre-performance discussion by Steven Caras on February 2 at 6:15 pm in the Picower Foundation Arts Education Center.
