Dance Consortium presents a Sadler’s Wells Production

Tango with a 21st century twist

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

Internationally celebrated for his ground-breaking productions with artists such as Akram Khan and Maria Pagès; for his award-winning works, Sutra, with the monks of the Shaolin Temple and Babel with Damien Jalet, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui now collaborates with an incredibly talented cast of 17 performers, uniting Argentinean tango dancers, contemporary dancers and live musicians. 

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.
