“Sensual, erotic and authentically Argentinian.” (Daily Telegraph)

After an acclaimed sell-out season in 2013, Tango Fire returns to The Peacock from Tuesday 27 January toSaturday 14 February with Flames of Desire, a show featuring global tango stars German Cornejo andGisela Galeassi, plus a cast including world tango champions and some of the best dancers from the tango houses of Buenos Aires. 

Choreographed by Cornejo, this show combines the rawness and sophistication, seductive and sultry sides of tango, evoking the intoxicating passion of late night Argentina. The audience is taken 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. 

Tango Fire encompasses all that defines Argentine tango; dancing which sizzles with sensuality, accompanied by four of Argentina's brilliant young musicians playing the music of the great tango masters includingPiazzollaPugliese and Gardel. Since its formation, Tango Fire has become an international leading tango company, with a fan base across the USA, Europe and Asia, and a YouTube audience in excess of 18 million.

German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi’s work with acclaimed contemporary dance choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui can be seen in m¡longa, the first international large-scale tango production to be directed by a non-Argentine artist, which premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 2013. m¡longa returns to Sadler’s Wells on 9 – 13 June 2015.
