Luis Bravo's internationally acclaimed Forever Tango will set the Miller stage on fire. Performances are Thursday, October 24 and Friday, October 25 at 7:30pm.Luis Bravo’s Forever Tango traces the colorful history of tango through music, dance and dramatic vignettes, features an all-Argentine cast – 14 dancers and a 11-piece orchestra. The 26-member Forever Tango Company includes world class dancers who utilize their own unique flourishes, each drawing from the wellspring of cultural inspiration offering unspoken insight into this mysterious and passionate art form.The orchestra is led by Victor Lavallén on the bandoneón, an accordion-like instrument imported to Argentina from Germany in 1886.According to creator/director Mr. Bravo, “The tango is a feeling that you dance; a story that you tell in three minutes – it is passionate, tender, violent.” He adds, “The tango represents so much more than just a dance: it is a music, a culture, a way of life.”Presented by Miller Outdoor Theatre.
