Founded in 2013 under the artistic direction of Osnel Delgado, Malpaso Dance Company expresses the passion and uncertainties that define Cuban life and are embodied in the country’s rich dance tradition. Touring the U.S. for the first time, the company exhibits its trademark fresh contemporary spirit in a program that includes 24 hours and a dog, a new contemporary dance piece by Delgado set to live music by 2015 Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble. Also on the program is Osnel Delgado’s Ocaso and Porque Sigues (Why You Follow) by Ronald K. Brown, which features the Brown's blend of African, Cuban and Western dance.
