Sound Culture Presents: This is Tango Now: IDENTIDAD
"This is Tango Now: Identidad" explores three fascinating issues relatable to anyone: identity, willpower, and passion. Who we are and our ability to act according to our own desires is what both makes us unique and binds us together.
However, we live in a world that can seem too overwhelming at times; one that may take us places we are not sure we want to go while we risk losing control of our mind and senses along the way. What have we become? Who sets our agenda? Who decides our destiny? With its realist and surrealist, highly rational but also emotionally primal approach to life, tango provides the very platform to explore such primary human issues.
In This is Tango Now: Identidad, we find ourselves among three characters: A Marionette, submission incarnate, who suddenly realizes that all her life she has been under the control and will of a domineering Puppeteer. Under the guidance of the Duende (a mysterious and mystical figure of ambiguous motive), our Marionette embarks on a journey of self-exploration, awareness, discovery, and liberation unlike anything she'd ever dreamt able. The intense and highly kinetic energy, pulse, and sound of tango are the backdrop for this story, intertwined with powerful dance, live music, lights and pure spectacle that reaches to tell her story...your story.
