Malpaso Dance Company

What I saw last night. Malpaso Dance Company at the Joyce Theater. IMG_5045The first piece had dancers interacting to the stripped down music of a female singer and guitar. Dancers seemed to mostly react to the lyrics particularly on the cover of Jolene.

The second piece live music from Arturo O’Farrill and a swinging 8 piece band. Kind of distracted from the dancers who started like beached whales with spot lights and move on to exaggerated stretches. Again did not always seem logical with the music.

Elements: live music Arturo O’Farrill
Titles: “Under Fire,” “Despidida/Farewell”
