Venue: Mark Morris Dance Center

With Osnel Delgado
For experienced and professional dancers
Osnel Delgado, the founder, artistic director, and performer with Malpaso Dance Company, offers a Cuban approach to contemporary dance, a style born out of a dense blend of references including Latin social dance, North American modern movement and Afro-Cuban religious traditions.
Malpaso is committed to bringing Cuban contemporary dance into the 21st Century by collaborating with top international choreographers and nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography. The company was founded in 2012 by Delgado, Dailedys Carrazana and Fernando Saéz, and consists of 10 dancers, including former members of Danza Contemporánea de Cuba. Their repertory includes 24 hours and a dog, a work by Delgado, set to music by Grammy Award-winning Cuban-American composer Arturo O’Farrill, Porque Sigues (Why You Follow) by the American choreographer Ronald K. Brown, and other works.
