New York City
The Tango is Argentina’s gift to the world – evoking sensuality and intrigue, lust and provocation, raw energy and knife-edge precision. Born in the brothels and taverns of Buenos Aires at the turn of the 20th century, Tango was the dance of the pimp, the fugitive, and the immigrants and country folk who were drawn to the economic promise of the capital. Tango Fire presents a breathless journey through the history of Tango, from its red-light origins through the roaring twenties to its current fascination on the world stage. Fuelled by the popularity of films like Shall We Dance and hit TV series Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance?, Tango is all the rage again!
