Dance Consortium presents

a Sadler’s Wells Production

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power and beauty. It is this unique appeal that has drawn one of the world’s most successful contemporary choreographers to create m¡longa.

Internationally renowned for his ground-breaking and critically revered productions with artists like Akram Khan and Maria Pagès; for his award-winning works, Sutra, with the monks of the Shaolin Temple and Babel with Damien Jalet, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui now collaborates with an incredibly talented cast of Argentinean dancers and musicians to create a show that brings his own unique style to the tango.

“Cloaked in intimacy, dappled with melancholy, Cherkaoui’s m¡longa makes you feel as if you’ve stumbled into a fantasy dance hall, and you’re the luckiest wallflower in town” – The Metro
