Tango in the shadows
Shadows are covered in light.
What happens when you embrace love and death?
Does love die or fall in love with death?
Maybe death would die in love and love would love until death.
This new creation by the choreographer and interpreter Marcos Ayala takes us towards the dualities of the human being. Opposite worlds, light and shadow, truth and lies, naivety and cunning. Tango expresses with just language that endless mix of darkness and light. Love, desire, strong emotions, feelings and sensations impossible to control, excitement and its control, a whole underground world, or not so much, that sprouts, flourishes, devastates. A journey of acceptance and doubts that will catch us.
Marcos Ayala and Paola Camacho embody The Universe of two beings who, like a flash of light, meet and test themselves, perhaps surrendering to the edge of their own limits. Pure feeling that drives you to be part of something new and wonderful, an amazing transformation. A whole that attracts and fears at the same time, like the advance of a devastating hurricane.
Power desire selfishness possession with an impulse of love until death flood the stage that makes us wonder, can pleasure also cause us so much pain?
A new bet that Marcos Ayala faces, turning this time to the creation of a tango musical of great histrionism, together with the playwright Ignacio Gonzalez Cano, who was summoned in this opportunity, they carry out one of the most interesting choreographic productions of his career, not only for the moments of dance resolved with great subtlety and elegance, but for the multiple nuances that the work covers throughout its 90 minutes with his company of 12 dancers.
"Tango in the shadows" calls for an experience of absolute communion with River Plate music, addressing feelings that are a substantial part of tango, moving between light and darkness.
