For the first time in the UK, after wildly successful performances across North America and Europe, the all-male Argentinian percussive dance and music sensation Che Malambo brings the power, poise and posturing of the gaucho cowboys to the Peacock stage.

Created by French director and choreographer Gilles Brinas and touring internationally since 2005, Che Malambo digs into the traditions and duelling culture of the macho Argentinian gaucho, with precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming and song originating in the South American pampas. Into the cultural melting pot were added elements of flamenco brought by the Spanish, the step dancing of 19th century Irish immigrants, and tap and body percussion brought by West African slaves who worked alongside the gauchos. The hallmark of Malambo is zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentinian bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones.

"Che Malambo sent the audience into uproarious applause" - The New York Times

"Dance with a power and passion that builds into a kind of ecstasy" - The Boston Globe

Che Malambo was amazing. Me and my Argentine husband enjoyed the show immensely and we wished that it was longer, however we understand that that would almost be inhuman judging by the physicality of the show.

Loved the show. Highly charged technically impressive yet simple in approach.Very enjoyable. Great price tickets for great seats but could move forward due to space. Love this venue!
