Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

I wore Jeans and a Jacket. It was one of those audiences where it would be difficult to underdress..

The performance was so-so, amateurish, unsophisticated and poorly put together. Much time was spent on singing, music and not enough dance. Would NOT recomment this performance.

Description

Following their rapturously received, sold-out run in New York City in 2006, the internationally renowned Argentinean dancer Guillermina Quiroga and her thrilling company return to the U.S. in their first North American tour.

Best known in this country for her stunning work with the smash hits Tango x2, Forever Tango and Tango Argentino, the classically trained Quiroga is one of Argentina’s premier tango dancers, hailed by The New York Times for her “lyrical grace,” “incredibly deft, snappy footwork” and “spectacular feats (a leg held behind her head as she turned, astonishing backbends).”

Intertwined with some of Argentina’s best poetry, music, and sensuous dance, Tango, Historias Breves brings us closer to stories of life, love and passion and delves deeply into the fundamental role destiny plays. Quiroga and her partner Claudio Villagra will be joined by three couples and the group Los Cosos de al Lao, led by conductor and bandoneon player Gustavo Paglia.
