Malpaso Dance Company with Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra

March 7, 2024

Thank you for joining us at Arts Commons for the Malpaso Dance Company with Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, presented in Partnership with Arts Commons & the BD&P World Stage.



As the world turns, and heats, with climate change and war and pestilence, art is more important than ever. We need to be inspired, we need escape, we need to be asked to think and see things in different ways, we need beauty. When we have nothing else, we have our bodies and our imagination. Please join us for our 39th season with your eyes, your ears, your minds. Bring your body to our theatre and experience some beautiful performances, come dance yourself at the Black & White Ball and at our many classes. Our 39th season is rich and full, a guaranteed selection of performances and events to inspire you, help you escape, maybe ask you to see things differently, and give you a good dose of beauty.

Malpaso Dance Company Ignites the Stage

The performing arts mean different things to different cultures.

In Eastern Europe for decades, theatre was a medium that was feared by those in power, because of its ability to use metaphor to send a political message. For Cuban Fernando Suarez, one of the co-founders of Malpaso Dance Company, dance and live music mean a little more there than they do here.

They’re tools of change.
