FOREVER TANGO-ED MIRVISH THEATRE
Nov. 6 to Nov. 11, 2018

FOREVER TANGO features fourteen world-class tango dancers, one vocalist and an on-stage eleven piece orchestra, including the instrument of the tango, the bandoneon, in an evening that celebrates the passionate music and dance of Argentina. The dances, performed to original and traditional music, are the result of collaboration between each couple and director/creator Bravo. “The tango is a feeling that you dance,” says Bravo, “a story you tell in three minutes. It’s passionate, it’s melancholic. It’s tender, violent. You dance it with somebody-but it is so internal, you dance it by yourself. More than just a dance, the tango is music, a drama, a culture, a way of life.
