Fresh from Argentina and making its NAC debut, Che Malambo has been exciting audiences worldwide with its spectacular take on the traditional South American dance that grew out of the vast lands of the Pampas. The malambo is defined by precise and vigorous footwork and rhythmic stomping, accompanied by bombos drumming, singing, and whirling boleadoras (lassos with stones on the ends). A rare occasion to witness unparalleled athletic prowess, agility and speed. This powerhouse all-male company is unforgettable.

Performance is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission.
