‘Complicidades, Tango & Flamenco’ in TarraTangueando

TarraTangueando presents the play ‘Complicidades, Tango & Flamenco’ within the framework of the Festival on Saturday, August 2nd at 9 PM at the Teatre Metropol in Tarragona.

'Complicidades,Tango & Flamenco…' is a story that develops from the use of traditional tangos performed live by two of the best musicians in the current tango: César Angeleri y Marcelo Mercadante. The voice of the singer 'La Carbonera' brings to the development of this complicity, which from the sound and movement creates a deep communication.

The excellence and ductility of the dancer Amador Rojas and the passion of international Pilar Alvarez and Claudio Hoffmann, thrill and seduce with the plasticity of their movements.

Covered by the sensuality of tango and flamenco, in a traditional format, extend the boundaries of both. A moving work.
