Combinado Argentino de Danza at the Colony Theatre October 17th
Combinado Argentino de Danza: Dance. It’s something literally every child, despite geographical location, is exposed to at some point in their early life. Our ancestors used dance as a form of communication as well as utilizing dance in ceremonies, celebrations, rituals and, of course, entertainment. And over the course of thousands of years, what would no doubt be viewed as primitive dancing now has evolved into its own world where, above all, self-expression is coveted.
Archaruli, Conga, Merignue, pole, Polka, Waltz, Tango, Salsa, Reggaeton, Jazz, tap dancing and breakdancing are just a few types of dances in what seems to be an almost unlimited number of dances, all of which require significant technical skill to master. But what would you get if you combined, say, hip-hop and breakdancing with contemporary and Argentine folkloric dancing? You’d get Combinado Argentino de Danza, a collective of dancers, DJ’s, musicians and artists from Buenos Aires, Argentina! Formed in 2011, the group has already gone global with shows in Spain, Brazil and South Africa while also performing at events like the International Festival of Buenos Aires, MICA (Mercado de Industrias Culturales Argentinas) and TED x Buenos Aires under the direction of Andrea Servera.
Making their U.S. debut on Saturday, October 17th at at 8pm the Colony Theatre in South Beach, Combinado Argentino de Danza promises to wow audiences with a carefully curated high-energy visual performance combined with the awesome sounds of DJ Villa Diamante. Rather than likening their performance to a “melting pot,” Combinado Argentino de Danza considers their performance more like a salad bowl where rather than a blending of different dances together to form something new. The collective combines dances in a way where each keeps its respective culture and expressiveness, only connecting the dances where they feel commonality is found, whatever that may be.
Bringing Combinado Argentino de Danza to Miami is part of Miami-Dade Colleges’ MDC Live Arts series, which is celebrating it’s 25th year this year, and also launches the Live Arts Mundo series which aims to offer a varied collection of shows from genres across the globe.
