Coming Home by Osnel Delgado, performed by Zenon Dance Company
Indomitable Waltz by Aszure Barton
Ocaso by Osnel Delgado
Why You Follow by Ronald K. Brown
Havana-based Malpaso Dance Company will open our Northrop season with a program that celebrates international collaboration. These sleek, sexy dancers turn up the island heat in an Afro-Cuban work by Ronald K. Brown, yet are equally fluent in the delicate, ethereal style of Aszure Barton’s touching Indomitable Waltz. For the Malpaso dancers, it’s a Minnesota debut—but for Artistic Director Osnel Delgado, it’s a reunion with Minneapolis-based Zenon Dance Company, who hosted his McKnight International Fellowship. Zenon will join the program to perform Delgado’s Coming Home, the baseball-inspired work he created just for them in 2014. Together, these two companies offer an exciting dance “double-header” for our season opener.
Malpaso Dance Company is an Associate Company of Joyce Theater Productions.
“As the theatre begins to vibrate with accumulated energy, you get the feeling that they could dance just about any genre with jaw-dropping style.” -NOW Magazine Toronto
