About the show
In a world where everything and nothing can be said with a flick of the leg, turn of the head or arch of an eyebrow, Forever Tango is the sensual and sophisticated show that is guaranteed to entertain every dance lover. Performed to original and traditional music, each dance is a story, whether it be passionate, melancholic or tender.
Taking place in 19th century Argentina, Forever Tango follows the birth of the tango, as thousands of men abandon Europe to emigrate to South America. Finding themselves in crowded abattoirs, bars and street corners, the thrilling dance is born out of a lonely and often violent existence. Originally shunned by Argentina, the tango went on to become an overnight craze and spread quickly across Europe and America.
The production is created and directed by Luis Bravo, a cellist who has performed with major symphonies across the world. Further creative team includes costume designer Argemira Affonso, sound designer Mike Miller and make-up designer Jean-Luc Don Vito. The show also features musical direction and arrangements by Victor Lavallen.
Touring the world’s major cities, Forever Tango has captured the hearts of audiences who have become enraptured in the intense, moving dance. Featuring fourteen world-class tango dancers, one vocalist and an eleven-piece orchestra, the experience is simply unmissable. The production plays at the Ed Mirvish Theatre from 6 November to 11 November 2018.
