Electrifying Argentinian Performers, Malevo, Set to Ignite Melbourne’s Summer

Melbourne, Play / 20 September 2023

Getting the City Pumped

Prepare for a shockwave of intense drumming and spirited dancing. Malevo, Argentina’s dance phenomenon, is coming to Melbourne for the first time. This all-male troupe has taken the world by storm, and now it’s our turn to experience their heart-pounding, high-energy shows. From 23-28 January 2024, they’ll be at the Arts Centre Melbourne’s State Theatre.

MALEVO

The Journey to Melbourne

First gaining attention as semi-finalists on America’s Got Talent, Malevo has shared stages with big names like Cirque du Soleil and Ricky Martin. This isn’t just a dance company; it’s a blend of tradition and fresh flair. Also, they’re Argentina’s Cultural Ambassadors. Talk about credentials!

More Than Just Steps and Beats

Malevo does more than just dance; they tell a story through each stomp and beat. They specialise in Malambo, a unique Argentinian folk dance. But they add a modern twist, using drums and hand-held boleadoras (traditional hunting tools) for an extra kick. The fusion is both mesmerising and exhilarating.

A Global Sensation Down Under

Matías Jaime, the troupe’s director, is amped about their Australian debut. “We’ve shared our culture globally, but Australia is a first for us,” he noted. And Australian producer Andrew Kay is equally thrilled. According to him, Malevo offers a “universal language of epic passion and prowess.”

Secure Your Seats

For those keen to witness this extraordinary act, tickets start at $89.00 plus a booking fee. It’s a modest price to pay for an unforgettable evening of dance and drumming that promises to redefine Melbourne’s arts and culture scene, even if just for one exhilarating week. Get your tickets here.

Closing Notes

So, mark your calendars and get ready to feel the energy. Malevo promises a summer show that Melbourne won’t forget any time soon. Let the countdown begin!
