Expect an evening as intense and dynamic as a day in Havana: Malpaso Dance Company opens this year’s summer festival!

Hardly any other country has been home to technically such savvy and multifaceted dancers as Cuba: In the twentieth century, choreographers such as Alberto Alonso further developed European ballet, incorporating US Modern Dance influences and integrating Afro-Cuban styles to form a specific Cuban dance language.

The Malpaso Dance Company founded in 2012 has devoted itself to the future of Cuban dance. The company has built up a contemporary repertoire with in-house productions by co-founder Osnel Delgado, a former dancer of the legendary Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, and commissioned works by mostly North American choreographers, with which they are filling the big halls in North and South America. Now the Malpaso Dance Company is coming to Europe for the first time, showing two seminal pieces: INDOMITABLE WALTZ, partly choreographed to music of Nils Frahm by Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton, currently one of the great innovators of dance with works for the Milan Scala and the Bavarian State Ballet among many others; and Osnel Delgado's 24 HOURS AND A DOG - inspired by everyday life in Havana and live accompanied by the 6-time Grammy Award winner Arturo O'Farrill (who in addition will perform at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie on August 12 as part of the summer festival). And to present all the stylistic openness and technical brilliance of this exceptional company (and to make the festival opening perfect), we are still working on a premiere as a third part of this evening (details will be announced with the release of the full festival program in June).
