In its Los Angeles debut just over a year ago, Malpaso Dance Company performed a contemporary program and at one point were joined onstage at the Dorothy Chandler by Arturo O’Farrill and his Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble.
For their return this week—three nights at the comparatively intimate Bram Goldsmith Theater at The Wallis—the Cuban troupe investigates the archives of high modernism. The performances will open with Jamie Scott’s restaging of Merce Cunningham’s FIELDING SIXES—music by John Cage—which premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1980.
Ohad Naharin went to Havana last year to collaborate with Malpaso in its restaging of Naharin’s thirty-year-old masterwork TABULA RASA, which will close the shows.
Rounding out the program are Malpaso artistic director and co-founder Osnel Delgado’s OCASO, and company member Beatriz García’s new work SER (BEING).
On opening night, join the artists for a post-performance talk-back.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 28, 29, and 30.
All shows at 7:30 pm.
