Recuerdo Tango: Mariela Franganillo Company 3 nights
A Tango tale in three parts, Recuerdo reflects on the present, past and everyday life through a series of vignettes. Featuring nine outstanding dancers, a quartet and vocalist under the direction of renowned dancer and choreographer Mariela Franganillo and Bob McAndrew, Recuerdo combines both early and modern expressions of tango to explore a variety of forms of memory -ranging in tone from passionate to comical and reaching the boundaries of tender to tormented. Rediscover the vitality of Tango in an evening of impassioned dance. The New York Times has complemented the company on the “real chemistry in their closely linked, swirling duos and their taut, whiplash footwork.”
Dancers include Mariana Parma (Evita, Swing! The Musical, USA Tango Champion) and Hernan Brizuela (Let’s Speak Tango, Gardenias); Ana Padrón and Diego Blanco (Tango 4 All); Walter Perez (Malevaje, Tangou, Fusion Tango, manoAmano) and Leonardo Sardella (Malevaje, Cacho Castagna, Queer Tango Festival); and BLANK AND BLANK (USA Tango Champions, Gypsy Tango, Amor de Tango, Eras del Tango, Tony Tango).
