Inside Tango, the Company’s latest production, is an innovative format within the creative style of Leonardo Cuello and a critically-acclaimed work both by specialized press and the public. The show premiered at the Cultural Centre for Cooperation Floreal Gorini in Buenos Aires, followed by an eight-week cycle of performances in July and August 2018.
This new show is dedicated to Women, a burning topic that derives from reflections carried forward by the whole of society. Cuello addresses the theme from an utmost “tanguera” viewpoint, portraying the stories of five women iconic to the realm of Tango.
The quintet could have been one or many more women. An intelligent excursion led to the selected personalities, emblematic for their deep involvement in the makings of tango. Ada Falcón, Sabina Olmos, Gicel Viganó, Tita Merello and Eva Duarte —each in her own way, talent or story, weaved herself for all time into the deeps threads of this River Plate art form.
Inside Tango also ponders on the timeworn issue of gender. In the aesthetics of a Tango Show, Cuello concocts an elegant, profoundly evocative performance that bears enormous emotional power. By cracking open the routine lines of Stage Tango, he lets unfold in poetic imagery the stories of love and heartbreak endured by each of these women.
Inside Tango is a novel show, stealing in its beauty and acute relevance to matters of current concern.
