m!long tango performance

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

Inspired by the late night milonga scene in the intimate bars of Buenos Aires (‘milonga’ is literally a tango dance party), internationally celebrated Belgian choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui adds a contemporary twist to this traditional dance.

Cherkaoui has made his name through his collaborations with artists like Akram Khan, Maria Pagès and the monks of the Shaolin Temple (Sutra, Brighton Festival 2013), while he has twice won the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production: first for Babel (Words) in 2011, and then Puz/zle in 2014.

For m¡longa, he unites 17 incredible performers – Argentinean tango dancers, contemporary dancers and live musicians – in a seductive exploration of tango for the 21st century.
