This year has become known as The Year Of The Tour. This weekend we even had a bit of a Weekend of the Tour with trips to the Strictly Tour and to see Tango Fire in the West End.
Having seen Immortal Tango last year (click here to see a review) we were very excited to see Tango Fire. It is the brainchild of German Cornejo, international Tango Superstar and we had very high hopes for this show.
The show did not disappoint. We were treated to theatrical treat full of traditional Tango. We had no idea there were so many different styles of tango and were really impressed by the technique and number of steps.
There were death-defying lifts and tricks, fast kicks and flicks and so much drama, passion and aggression that we loved the show and had goosebumps from start to finish!
The band and singer performed some beautiful authentic Tango Music which transported us across the pampas straight to Buenos Aires.
Our favourite routine had to be the ethereal Tango Valz where the male dancers showed off their strength and the female dancers floated across the floor like angels.
We must also give credit to the dancer whose heel got caught in her dress during the performance. It added to the drama of the show, but they recovered the performance perfectly and their feet flew across the floor with such speed, even Usain Bolt would be jealous!
This show is a true Masterclass in Tango and if you get the chance to go, it is worth it! The show is on at the Peacock Theatre, Sadler’s Wells, London until the 18th February when it moves to do a short tour around the country.
