The Leonardo Cuello Company creates powerful work that seeks new and innovative ways for the telling and making of Stage Tango. Its aesthetic propositions challenge the commercial tango revue, making space for diverse forms of expression to configure a Tango-proper narrative discourse. In its more than 10 years of existence, it has created five distinct shows with box-office success in Buenos Aires theatres and numerous national and international performances.
The group, made up of outstanding professional Tango dancers that work under the guidance of Leonardo Cuello, has developed a repertoire that today accounts for deep research processes into Tango technique, mostly in exploring its expressive and narrative possibilities.
The productions of the company’s repertoire are characterised by delivering a sensitive and comprehensive experience to the viewer, prompted by a careful aesthetic curation where the costume, set and light designs complete the poetic discourse through which the tango stories unfold.
The Company was consolidated in 2005, a key year in which it brought forth nine performance cycles in Buenos Aires and nearly a dozen international tours, among them stand out the presentations at the Parco della Musica Festival / Buenos Aires Tango (Rome, Italy), the Festival Oriente Occidente (Rovereto, Italy), the Torino-Buenos Aires Encounter for Artistic Exchange (Italy), the Torinodanza Festival (Italy) and the Florence Dance Festival (Italy).
The Leonardo Cuello Company was selected by the Ministry of Culture of the Nation to open the Inaugural Gala event of the Ibero-American Theatre Festival of Bogotá in 2018 (Colombia), as well as to represent the country (Argentina) at the Valparaíso Arts Festival in 2017 (Chile).
