Event Description


Tango Argentina is a partner dance and social dance that originated in the 1880s along the Rio de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay. It was born in the impoverished port areas of these countries, in neighborhoods which had African descendants.

The tango has been called a “dance of sorrow”, it represents frustrated love and human fatality, although originally the dance was not so deep and serious.8 The original tango music had no lyrics to it and the dances were mostly improvised and in some cases were a combination of dance and wordless theater.

Created by artistic director and choreographer Marcos Ayala, Tango Argentina brings 12 of Argentina’s best tango dancers and musicians to Segerstrom Center as part of its inaugural tour of the United States, extraordinary and thrilling program which combines tango traditions with contemporary stories
