Estampas Porteñas, the hottest Tango company in Buenos Aires, made its North American debut in
Fall 2006. The thrilling and exciting Tango Fire production features a quartet of brilliant young musicians, passionate dancers and a great singer performing the music of the legendary Astor Piazzolla. Tango Fire offers a journey from the red light district of Buenos Aires, to the glamour of the Roaring Twenties, into the world of contemporary ballroom dance. Tango - Argentina's gift to the world - is one of the most alluring and exciting dance forms, evoking sensuality and intrigue, lust, raw energy and knife-edge precision.
It takes ten, not two, to tango in this slick, crowd-pleasing dance and music extravaganza by the Argentine group Estampas Porteñas. Once it finishes its London run, Tango Fire will tour the UK throughout October, and then will continue its tour in the USA. Carolina Soler’s production adds up to a highly entertaining night out that bristles with an assured, almost cartoon sexuality.
