Che Malambo

Event Header_0

CHE MALAMBO, the malambo, alongside the tango, is the national dance of Argentina, drawing on the tradition of the gauchos of the pampas and transforming the physical exuberance of the horseman into virtuosic dance. CHE MALAMBO is choreographed and directed by Gilles Brinas. The company of thirteen all male performers present the dance of the malambo, a gaucho tradition (cowboys from the pampas). A genuine outlet that asks for dexterity and incomparable energy, Malambo captures everything in its path, leaving the audience astounded (and exhausted!). This group has created the first and most unique performance in the world of Malambo, bringing the strength and the power of a horse in full gallop, the grace and spirit of Argentine dancers, and the beauty of a free spirit.

The dancers stomp their heeled boots or their bare feet on the roughly treated floor, keeping the rhythm with the bombo – a drum made of wood and hide, and hold and turn the boleados – originally 2 or 3 leather straps full of stones. They are not simply folk dancing; these well-trained dancers have a strong technique that allows for very physical sequences. Originally, the Malambo is an individual dance, exclusively masculine. Two men face to face defining the rhythms, confronting each other in a rhythmic duel of zapateado – stomping their feet competitively and fiercely until one of them gamely declares defeat.

Three performances of Che Malambo will take place November 16th at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m. and November 17th at 3 p.m. at Queens Theatre, located at 14 United Nations Ave. South, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY.
