About this show

Let's Speak Tango! tells the story of a couple who meet while dancing the tango: he's Italian and she German. The play, now set in the U.S., intertwines the use of classical and modern forms of tango with dialogue to force the viewer to listen and focus on the emotion of the dance form. Even though they don't speak the same language the couple understands each other perfectly as they fall in love, learning to communicate by listening to each other through the language of dance. As their relationship grows, Giorgio realizes that the more he learns English, the less the couple understands each other. The play explores expression through dance, fusing movement with dialogue.
