TANGO FATAL COMPANY in “TANGO Y AMOR”

Tango originated in Argentina in the late 1800s, invented by the creativity of the first immigrants, especially Italian and French, who sought an escape from hard daily life, to take refuge in music and dance. A new music, almost a fusion of European, American and black rhythms and sounds, but above all a new, bold and transgressive dance.
!t was danced in public housing, in the barrios of the suburbs, in cabarets called perigundines and in the infamous dance halls of San Telmo and Boca, where all the scandalous rules of the new dance were allowed: the sensuality of the embrace, the provocative intertwining of the legs and the bold words of the songs that told the sad reality of survival and the nostalgia for the distance from their land, but they exalted loyalty and brotherhood in adversity. Thus was born the tango, expression of body and mind for a free and intuitive choreography, destined to become part of the identity and culture of the Argentine people.
Tango Fatal is an international tango company directed by Guillermo Berzins, a world-famous Argentine dancer and choreographer, who will involve us in the show Tango y Amor, together with his sensual dancer with great technical and interpretative ability of Marijana Tanasković.
The show, with a strong emotional impact, makes the sensual and mysterious atmospheres of Buenos Aires revive and live on stage, managing to maintain an abstract and suspended in time setting, always current and modern, where dance, the main and fundamental element, is blends harmoniously with the music played by excellent musicians directed by the concertmaster Oksana Peceny Dolenc. Interpreting the romantic and dramatic notes of the most famous tangos and combining the rhythms of different tango periods, the show Tango y Amor is a promise of irresistible seduction!
There will be a dance between men who challenge each other with a knife, the partner as a key character of the tango, the ancient way of dancing of the canyengue tango, without forgetting the contagious energy of Argentine folklore and its gauchos with bombos and boleadoras, up to get to the golden age and finally reach spectacular contemporary choreography crowned by the music of Astor Piazzolla.
