Combining dance and video, this show tells of how a man is transformed when he discovers tango, and at the same demonstrates the generational and cultural interplay that takes place in the milongas of Buenos Aires. The story reflects what is happening today in all over the world where thousands of people are learning to dance tango. Some day they all make it to Buenos Aires. Wherever they are from: Paris, Shanghai or Villa Crespo, Social Tango is dedicated to those milongueros, the Unknowns of Tango. Agustina Videla, the director and choreographer, explains: “On the one hand, I wanted to translate all the beauty of tango dance to the stage, with the help of seven professional dance couples. But without disconnecting the dance from its social side, from what tango means to people.” The social side is depicted in images (video and photos) by Nora Lezano.
