This contemporary spin on the Argentinian ‘malambo’ will make you want to get up and dance.
As part of the 19th Festival de l'Imaginaire, the Maison des Cultures du Monde will shimmy to the wild rhythms of the ‘malambo’ (a typically male dance originally from the Pampa region of Argentina). Direction comes from the choreographer Diana Theocharidis, who aims to give this traditional South American dance a groundbreaking contemporary spin, while music comes courtesy of Pablo Ortiz on the bandoneon. Audience participation is optional.
