Théâtre Maisonneuve - Place des Arts Book

Composed of 12 dancers and six musicians, including two singers, Social Tango Project proposes tango as a meeting place, intimately linked to the lives of people of all ages and conditions. Inspired by the dissociation between what is shown on stage and what people experience when they go out to dance, choreographer Agustina Videla combines photography, dance, and cinematic documentary to create a one-of-a-kind experience.

Be it the music, the beauty, or the sense of connection, tango has won the hearts of dancers around the world. Originating in the 1880s along the Rio de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay, the dance form has since spread to the rest of the world. Across cultures and generations, this conversation between bodies enables people to meet in an “embrace.”
