M¡longa is genius choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s(Babel) and tango superstar Nelida Rodriguez de Aure’s ecstatic take on Argentine tango. Let m¡longa cast its magic spell with searing duets that defy the laws of physics, flick-knife footwork and electrifying ensemble dance.
A five-piece orchestra including bandonen, state-of-the-art video projections, with vintage tunes by Astor Piazzolla and newer compositions to propel 10 masterful tango dancers, will land you smack bang in the sass and hubbub of the streets and late-night bars of modern-day Buenos Aires.
