In m¡longa, internationally revered wunderkind Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui collaborates with an incredibly talented cast of Argentinean dancers and live musicians to create a show that brings his own unique style to tango. Featuring 12 superb dancers and 5 musicians, the work is a celebration of tango’s eternal embrace, an homage to its birthplace, and an exuberant display of innovation. Cherkaoui captures the drama of a traditional milonga and infuses it with modernist staging and exquisite, contemporary vocabulary. A fresh and electrifying work ultimately about the intensity and joy of dancing together.
