Sony Centre Presents One Night Only Performance of TANGO PASIÓN, 2/18

Twenty-one years ago, Tango Argentino revitalized tango with its triumph on Broadway, and now the same producers, with choreographer Hector Zaraspe, current faculty member of The Juilliard School, will present their international tango show, TANGO PASIÓN, on stage for one night only Saturday, February 18, 2012 at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts. 
 
Born in the brothels of 1880s Buenos Aires, the tango began as a dance and evolved into an art form treasured by its nation. Artistic Directors Mel Howard and José Libertella, accompanied by choreographer Hector Zaraspe and painter Ricardo Carpani, spent months in the heart of Buenos Aires creating this production that weaves together a collection of tango stories uncovered by a cast of dexterous dancers representing the full range of Argentine society. 
 
Set in a quaint Buenos Aires café, TANGO PASIÓN features 10 dancers backed live by the Tango Pasión Sexteto Orchestra. 
 
In Argentinean fashion, the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts is staging a post-show Tango Milonga (dance party) in the lobby of the theatre, open to all audience members. The Sony Centre’s main lobby will become an open dance floor, complete with live DJ, for an evening of dance and music.
