malpaso

— A FEW NOTES —

Malpaso Dance Company (+ Arturo O’Farrill) – Triple Bill (3 parts)

Cuba : long tradition of dancing (ballet/modern dance)

-> “much better to enjoy yourself than to be a good dancer”

AOF improvizing all the time (“repetition = always a new experience”)

-> musicians and dancers feed of each other

-> boarders of any kind don’t matter

-> approach of theatre : Meyerhold, Grotowski, Brecht

-> world of art # world of competition (-> need nice people)

-> shows made up with different choreographers through improvisation

MALPASO = BACK STEP (important to make mistakes)
