“Each duet a mini drama, sexual electricity at the twitch of a hip.” The Evening Standard

Following sell-out seasons in New York, Barcelona, Hamburg, Cape Town and in London 2011, Argentina’s hottest dance company, Tango Fire, returns to the UK in 2013 with their critically acclaimed show, Flames of Desire at the Peacock Theatre from 30 January to 24 February as part of this show’s second international tour.

Flames of Desire takes the audience on a journey through the history of tango - tracing its roots in the dance halls of Buenos Aires before moving through the decades to showcase tango’s growing popularity as a contemporary dance form. Flames of Desire features ten sensational dancers, including five world tango champions, with choreography by the show’s lead dancer German Cornejo, accompanied by the company's quartet of brilliant musicians, Quarteto Fuego.

From its origins in the dance halls of Buenos Aires through to its growing popularity on the entertainment scene, the Tango Fire company has cemented a reputation internationally as one of the most innovative and exciting practitioners of contemporary tango in the world. Their exciting productions are all set against the musical backdrop of Astor Piazzolla, Mores, Gardel, Rodriguez and other tango masters.

Quarteto Fuego, the company’s resident music group, provide the live music on the traditional instruments of tango, double bass, piano, violin and bandoneón. The band and dancers are accompanied by one of Argentina’s finest young singers, Jesus Hidalgo.
