m¡longa is Spanish for ‘Tango Dance Party’ and this show celebrates the street dance culture of Argentina that has influenced popular tango shows today such as Theatre Royal favourites Vincent & Flavia and TV’s Strictly Come Dancing. Scroll down for photos and videos of the production!
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.
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.
