Tango Fire

Having previously performed at the Grand Théâtre in Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, tango duo German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi are back with a company of eight other dancers as they take to the stage with Tango Fire – a piece that simply oozes burning passion and sensuality. Rarely has the Argentine tango, the ultimate working-class art form, reached such a demanding and accomplished standard. Set to the music of masters such as Piazzolla, Pugliese and even Gardel performed by the Tango Fuego Quartet, the dancers celebrate the brutality, sophistication, seduction and sensuality of the Buenos Aires-born street art form that is the tango, with six couples taking to the stage to simultaneously perform the apparently simple but incredibly masterful rolling choreography of German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi.
