Suarez Paz TANGO Presents Leonardo Suarez Paz's PIAZZOLLA 100: El Nuevo Tango

Leonardo Suarez Paz's PIAZZOLLA 100 celebrates liberty and the invaluable contribution of immigrants and women to society, starting with our namesake, whose centennial will be celebrated in 2021. Astor Piazzolla, the Argentine born and New York raised composer mentored Leonardo Suarez Paz, who now leads this cross cultural, interdisciplinary project in order to demonstrate how the desires, values and artistic influences of immigrants continue to fuel the evolution of Nuevo Tango and enrich our society. The project recreates Tango as an elevated, contemporary and relevant art form, infusing it with modern choreographic elements and influences from classical, jazz and popular music.

This program is dedicated to Liberty, the central theme of our 2021 festival and previews the interdisciplinary show, El Nuevo Tango. Featuring Grammy winning and Latin Grammy nominated Leonardo Suarez Paz, tango orchestra tango dance and an all female Nuevo Tango Ballet. Challenging artistic, sociocultural and gender constructs, this show takes us to the forefront of the genre and expresses the real present art of Nuevo Tango today.
