the essence of this impassioned production is its exceptional dancers and their supercharged relationships- New York Times, USA
In a nutshell:
It takes 12 to tango / Super-charged dance superstars / Passion and seduction – Argentine style
Welcome to the milonga – a celebratory party where tango dance and music are a way of being; a place of passion and unparalleled beauty.
m¡longa is genius choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s (Babel) and tango superstar Nelida Rodriguez de Aure’s ecstatic take on Argentine tango. Let m¡longa cast its magic spell with searing duets that defy the laws of physics, flick-knife footwork and electrifying ensemble dance.
A five-piece orchestra with bandoneon plays a score merging vintage tunes by Astor Piazzolla with newer compositions to propel 10 masterful tango dancers and two contemporary dancers on whilst state-of-the-art video design lands you smack-bang in the sass and hubbub of the streets and late-night bars of Buenos Aires.
Far more than a dance for stars, m¡longa offers the audience the chance to explore the beauty, ferocious energy and alluring intimacy of tango.
