I AM TANGO by TANGO LOVERS is bringing a taste of Argentina and Uruguay to Zorlu PSM on the 23rd and 24th of November!  

TANGO LOVERS, multiple times awarded “Best Show of the Year” and “Best International Production” presents its new production “I AM TANGO”

With an ensemble of 24 world-renowned professionals, World Tango Dance Champions, singers and acclaimed music prodigies, “I AM TANGO” by TANGO LOVERS presents in one hour and fifty five minutes a distinctive perspective of tango by staging its artistic evolution over time. The genre is represented by a central character named “Tango” who questions his essence represented by the bandoneon about the fusion of the tango genre with classical dance, jazz, folklore and contemporary dance.

The character transits through different ages and cultures evolving with the passing of the years while maintaining the essence of the music that made its mark all over the world. 

The show starts with iconic pieces of Tango mixed in a potpourri of songs masterfully danced by TANGO LOVERS troupe and performed by the TANGO LOVERS orchestra showing in six minutes a flash evolution from the traditional to the contemporary tango.

Both Tango and his essence enter into a time warp to explore in deep the stages of the genre. 

“I AM TANGO” by TANGO LOVERS generates the appropriate creative setting through music, dance, fashion styles, lighting and multimedia to engage your senses to the world of tango, from the Golden years to contemporary times. TANGO has never been so sensual, passionate and dynamic.

Dare to discover the magic of TANGO LOVERS with “I AM TANGO”, an experience you will never forget.
