“Che Malambo” dancers will hit their boots from January 30 to April 21, 2019 on the stage of Bobino from Wednesday to Sunday.
Malambo is an Argentinean dance (no, people don’t only dance tango in Argentina…) exclusively for men where they face off each other hitting the heels of their boots. This dance is paced by the sound of “bombos”, drums made of wood and skin. The “Boleadoras”, lassos with wooden balls at the ends spin in the air before hitting the floor in perfect harmony with the dancers’ feet.
“Che Malambo” gives pride of place of what we call “the art of gauchos”. It’s the first zapateados show (literally meaning tap-dancing, in Spanish) in France.
On stage, 12 artists, dancers and musicians, a company managed by choreographer Gilles Brina (who danced for Lyon Opera as well as alongside Maurice Béjart and even Robert Hossein). Fond of malambo, he created his company in 2005.
Dancers’ characters are quite puzzling, at the crossroad between man and horse while showing manhood and strength. Steps are quick and vigorous, inspired by the horse galop.
For a travel to Argentina, you don’t need to book a flight to Buenos Aires, you’ll be sure to experience a change of scenery at Bobino with “Che Malambo”.
