Osnel Delgado, artistic director
Bringing a little slice of Havana to the Barclay!
Embodying the passion that defines Cuban life and its rich dance tradition, Malpaso Dance Company has become one of Cuba’s most sought-after dance companies. Artistic Director Osnel Delgado emphasizes a collaborative creative process by working with top international choreographers while also nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography.
With a program that includes Indomitable Waltz by acclaimed Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton and Face the Torrent, a new work by Sonya Tayeh, Malpaso Dance Company is steeped in driving Latin grooves and inspired sensual choreography that has taken the American dance world by storm.
"[Mr. Delgado's] finely kneaded movement, which almost makes you want to grab it in fistfuls, buoys into and out of the ground with delectable ease." (The New York Times)
