Tango Words

“Tango… a kind of magic going on…”

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s M¡longa – A Tango Project (a Sadler’s Wells production) is currently on tour in the UK.  It’s on at The Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 June. We’ve booked for the Friday.

From the M¡longa website:

Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power and beauty.

For m¡longa, internationally celebrated choreographer and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, collaborates with an incredibly talented cast of 17 performers, uniting Argentinean tango dancers, contemporary dancers and live musicians to create a show that brings his own unique style to tango.

Milonga is the term for a tango dance party. Inspired by the late night milonga scene held in the intimate bars of Buenos Aires, Cherkaoui draws on traditional influences and adds a contemporary twist. The result is a seductive and fascinating exploration of tango for the 21st century.

Incidentally, dancers from M¡longa will be teaching a Tango Workshop Saturday 10 June from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The price of £32 includes a ticket for the Saturday night performance.
