'Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power, beauty and mystique.
Internationally renowned for his groundbreaking and critically revered productions with artists like Antony Gormley and María Pagés, and for his award-winning works such as Sutra and Babel(words), Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui collaborates with an incredibly talented cast of ten tango dancers from Buenos Aires, two contemporary dancers and a tango band of five musicians'.
'Taking the idea of a milonga as its starting point, those social dance-evenings held in intimate late night bars in Buenos Aires, Cherkaoui applies his unique choreographic approach to the art of tango. Incorporating Eugenio Szwarcer's stunning projections, m¡longa features new music from Argentinian composer Fernando Marzan, Cherkaoui's long-term collaborator Szymon Brzóska and additional music by Olga Wojciechowska. This new work offers an exciting opportunity to explore this traditional dance from another cultural perspective'. Info from Sadler's Wells
