    Malpaso Dance Company, one of Cuba’s hottest and newest multi-cultural contemporary dance troupes, makes its Philadelphia debut, performing two full-company works. 24 Hours and a Dog is a 40-minute work choreographed by Osnel Delgado (Artistic Director Co-Founder/Malpaso). Set to the theatrical and evocative music by Grammy Award-winning jazz composer Arturo O’Farrill, the work is inspired by the daily life of a dancer in Havana -- the rhythms of everyday life and a mysterious invisible character of a dog. NOW Toronto notes “As the theatre begins to vibrate with accumulated energy, you get the feeling that they could dance just about any genre with jaw-dropping style.” Why You Follow choreographed by Ronald K. Brown (Artistic Director/Evidence) is a rousing exploration of the rhythmic pace of Afro-Cuba culminating into a rollicking poly-rhythmic house party to music by Zap Mama, Gordheaven & Juliano, The Allenko Brotherhood, and Heavy Quarterz. Dance Enthusiast notes, it “features vibrant steps performed to infectious Afro-Cuban sounds. African, disco, hip hop, and modern dance forms meld with the performers’ vivacious flair to create a singular, communal style.”
