Show Information


Dance Consortium presents a Sadler’s Wells Production
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power and beauty.

Internationally celebrated choreographer 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.

M¡longa is the term for a tango dance party. Inspired by the late night m¡longa scene held in the intimate bars of Buenos Aires, Cherkaoui draws on traditional influences and adds a contemporary twist. The result is a seductive and fascinating exploration of tango for the 21st century.

★★★★ "m¡longa casts a magic spell" Metro
