OUR FIRST CUBAN COMPANY MALPASO COMING WEDNESDAY MAY 4!
“They’re sparklingly present…and remarkably strong all around.”
-The New York Times
Concluding its 18th season on May 4, 2016, White Bird proudly presents its first Cuban company, Malpaso Dance Company, based in Havana, which is committed to bringing Cuban contemporary dance into the 21st Century. The thrilling program features two recent works by Artistic Director Osnel Delgado as well as a new piece by one of Portland’s favorite choreographers Trey McIntrye. The final work on the program by Delgado will be set to a live score by Grammy-winning composer Arturo O’Farrell and played live by his 8-piece band, the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble, featuring award-winning jazz saxophonist Ivan Renta.
