The dancers of the famed Geneva Grand Theatre Ballet create a spectacular full-length show to the vibrant and throbbing rhythms of the Argentine Tango. Highly acclaimed choreographer Oscar Araiz (known for his work with the Joffrey Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada), uses Tango music, rhythms and movements to create 12 vignettes that are seductive, exciting and entertaining. Performed with undeniable flair and precision by some of the finest dancers in Europe, this DVD showcases one of South America’s most influential and celebrated cultural accomplishments.

 

"Tango has a unique personality and charisma that is cleverly captured by Araiz' intricate, sensuous choreography for this excellent Company... highly recommended." - DANCE MAGAZINE

 

After its birth along the docks and in the slums of Buenos Aires, the Tango reached the height of international popularity between the first and second World Wars.

The myths of its origins brings together Europe immigrants with the men of the ports (portenos) and the gauchos, blending the Andalusian Tango with the Cuban Habanera, while borrowing the musical syncopation of the “milonga” and the rhythms of the African “candombe” beat imported by slaves.

 

For the people of Argentina, the Tango is not merely a dance that invokes a sense of patriotic pride and heritage, but an exhilarating means of overcoming their sadness, pain and loss. Instead of succumbing to the finality of their often impoverished and desperate situations, the Tango, with its inseparable blend of dance, acting, and music, helped them face the daily struggles of life. Selections include Responso, Introduction Kyrie, La Tablada, La Punalada, Sibando, Orgullo Criollo, La Casita de mis Viejos. Pequena, Taconeando, Mi Refugio, El Dia que me Quieras, and El Chocio.
