THE LAST TANGO Coming to Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury in April
BRITAIN'S best-loved dance duo will perform together in one last tour, coming to The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury, next month (April).
Twenty years of dancing together have seen them become Strictly Come Dancing favourites, World Argentine Tango Champions, and create and star in their own Olivier Award-nominated West End productions. But now, as they prepare to take on new projects, it is time for Vincent and Flavia to say goodbye to audiences across the UK.
Flavia said: "We have had such a fantastic time creating and dancing in Midnight Tango and Dance 'Til Dawn. It's an incredible experience to perform live in front of our wonderful audience night after night, but all good things must come to an end, so we're creating our final theatre show. It's going to be intimate, emotional and full of our award-winning Argentine tango. The Last Tango is going to celebrate our best work and most beautiful dance moves before we finally say farewell to theatre."
Vincent added: "The last few years have been intense - we've loved it. It may be our final theatre tour but we're going to go out with a bang! This is going to be our best show yet!"
Vincent and Flavia will be joined on stage by Teddy Kempner, Matthew Gent, Callum Clack, Diana Girbau, Rebecca Herszenhorn, Aaron James, Rebecca Lisewski, Jemima Loddy, Ian Oswald and Grant Thresh. The Last Tango is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce, and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions (The Producers, Dance 'Til Dawn, Midnight Tango, Love Me Tender, The Mousetrap on Tour).
The Last Tango is at The Marlowe Theatre from Tuesday 12 to Saturday 16 April. Tickets, priced from £24 to£42.50 (discounts available; booking fees apply), are from the Box Office on 01227 787787 or at marlowetheatre.com.
