“These dancers’ gorgeous and glorious movement is all loose limbs and soaring extensions that sweep in high arcs over one another’s heads.” Helena Alonso Paisley, ArtBurst Miami, 2017

NAC Presentation

An Associate Company of Joyce Theater Productions.

The Havana-based Malpaso – Cuba’s first independent dance company – has grown to become one of the most internationally sought-after in its short five-year history. For its NAC debut, it’s bringing a mix of the soulful, the sexy and the sensational. The beautiful duet Ocaso by resident choreographer and Artistic Director Osnel Delgado and Ohad Naharin’s Tabula Rasa perfectly complement a program that includes commissioned works by two in-demand female creators: Indomitable Waltz by Canadian Aszure Barton and Face the Torrent by the Emmy-award winning New Yorker Sonya Tayeh.
