“Nostalgias de Tango”
“Nostalgias de Tango” is an Argentine tango show
in two acts, written by Leo Landa
and produced in collaboration with top Argentine tango artists
in San Francisco Bay Area.
The plot follows the story of a couple whose chance encounter
and subsequent unfolding events are influenced
and colored by Argentine tango.
Set in present day, the show highlights how the nature
and the roots of Argentine tango, dating more than
a century back, are still relevant and dangerously powerful
in modern life. The plot blurres the edges between life
and tango, past and present, reality and dreams.
The show features live music by Argentine tango group “Tangonero,” led by Alex Roitman,
vocals by Claudio Ortega and Irina Martineau,
narration by Irina Martineau, and dancing by Leo Landa and Alona Gorer.
The show premiered in November 2013 in Pacifica, to a full house.
