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.
