A man. A woman. Tango. Paris, Buenos Aires and… (lights)… Broadway!

Tango, Pulsacion n°1 is a dance piece for two characters, blending together Argentine tango, video art, drama and music-hall. This work is a true odyssey through the personal universe of two people. It is both a journey of initiation into the fascinating world of Argentine tango and a profound contemplation on the relation to the other person, to oneself and to the stage. Tango, Pulsacion n°1 is an unclassifiable and unique piece, constantly oscillating between comedy and tragedy. This not a tango show, rather a drama without words in which the Tango is one of the characters.

This piece is created and performed by Céline Ruiz and Damián Rosenthal, two Argentine tango choreographers and dancers who have been collaborating since 2000. Recognized in the world of Argentine tango for their creativity and quality performances, they have appeared in numerous international festivals as well as in many theatre shows such as Tango Clasicos at Paris’ Théâtre National de Chaillot, the shows of the tango companies Union Tanguera, All That Tango Dance Company and Compania Argentina. They have worked alongside several renowned musicians such as Richard Galliano and Juan José Mosalini. Tango, Pulsacion n°1 is the result of many years of research on Argentine tango, movement techniques and theatricality.

The show arrives in Bulgaria less than two months after its very successful preimere in Paris. The performance in Sofia is organized by TanguerIN Studio as part of the festival DIA(s) DEL TANGO 2009 (www.diadeltango.com). The show will be followed by a special milonga (tango party) in the space of Modern Theatre, entrance to which is included in the price of the ticket.
