Program: Malevo

Saturday, March 25, 2023
The Berklee Performance Center

Malevo is a dance company created by the director, choreographer, and dancer Matias Jaime. The Malambo (traditional Argentine dance of virility and skill) is his main resource, starting from the essence but taking it beyond its own limits with a modern, avant-garde and transgressive vision. The force and energy of the Malambo, with the use of drums, boleadoras, and zapateo, awaken the senses and leave the adrenaline running high, transmitting the essence of the gaucho of La Pampa, providing spectators with a totally innovative visual and sensory experience. 

Malevo is the perfect combination of originality and excellence; it is a wild beast with elegance but a warrior instinct. The company achieved worldwide recognition after its successful participation in the renowned American television program America’s Got Talent and received the Marca Pais distinction as cultural ambassadors from Argentina to the world. It has been presented in numerous events, shows, festivals, and tours around the world. 

In its own country, Malevo has been called upon to appear on the most recognized TV programs and has been hired for important events (Thai Polo Cup 2016, Fundación COAS, Fundación Zaldivar, YouTube launches, Loreal, Citroen, Fiat, Silkey, Fox Sports, ESPN, TNT, Banco Supervielle, 40 Edition Dakar, Motos Hero India, Omega Youth Olympic Games, Jaguares Rugby Argentina, etc.). 

The company has performed in such festivals as Juste Pour Rire and L’Incroyable (Canada) and on the TV show La France a un incroyable talent (France) as well as other important world festivals:  Global Village (Dubai), Santa Lucía Festival (Mexico), Lollapalooza (Argentina), Dance Open (Russia), Gastronomic Culinary Festival (Spain), 22 Historique Rally (Monte Carlo), etc.  The Sony Latinoamerica channel filmed a special program with the name Malevo Has Talent, broadcast for Spanish-speaking viewers. 

– Cirque Du Soleil summoned Malevo to be part of the One Night for One Drop world gala in Las Vegas. 

– Universal Studios Japan established a permanent Malevo brand show for 1 year in its theme park. 

– Ricky Martin and Jamie King summoned Malevo’s director, Matias Jaime, as choreographer for the Puerto Rican singer’s show All In at the Park Theater Monte Carlo. 

Currently the company carries out international tours with its show Malambo Xtreme and is developing Salvaje, a new show of great scope. The company also maintains Malevo Art Factory, an online platform for teaching dances (Malambo and others) throughout the world.
