Che Malambo

Che Malambo

The Argentine company Che Malambo excites audiences through precise footwork and rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos, singing, and whirling boleadoras (lassos with stones on the end). Presenting a thrilling, percussive dance and music spectacle, the company’s work celebrates the unique South American cowboy tradition of the gaucho. This powerhouse all-male company of gauchos is directed by French choreographer and former ballet dancer Gilles Brinas.

“It’s as if we’re being given a fleeting glimpse of the inner workings of the universe.” - Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

“Grace meets physical agility to create movement that is as lyrical as it is astonishing.” - The Sunday Oregonian

“Pilobolus embodies a large part of what the best in contemporary dance is all about: discovery. Making something new with the same standard body parts the rest of us have.” - The Washington Post

Pilobolus—named after a barnyard fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength—is a dance company founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971 – among them Lyndon Institute grad Moses Pendleton who later went on to his establish his company, Momix. Of note: The evening’s performance will include a signature piece from those early years, choreographed by Pendleton and his partners. It’s title – Walklyndon.

Pilobolus continually forms diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the way we think about dance. Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world through performance, education and consultation.

Pilobolus propels itself in a variety of directions to reach these goals. The original company, Pilobolus Dance Theater, has been touring its 115 pieces of repertory to more than 64 countries over the last 42 years. To date, the Pilobolus Lab has produced collaborations with Penn & Teller, the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory, Art Spiegelman, Maurice Sendak, OK Go, Radiolab, and many others.
