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.
Running time: approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
There will be a post-show Q&A with members of the creative team after Friday evening’s performance.
