Tango enthusiasts are in for a real treat: World-leading Argentine dance sensation Germán Cornejo’s Tango Fire returns to The Peacock to take audiences on an explosive journey through the seductive art form of tango, showcasing the rawness, sophistication and intoxicating passion of this dance. The production comes to London from 31st January – 18th February 2017, ahead of a UK tour.

International tango superstars Germán Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi are joined by a cast of extraordinary couples, including several World Tango Champions and the best dancers from Buenos Aires’ famous tango houses. Each couple in the company has been chosen for their individual style and interpretation of tango, accompanied by the unforgettable music of the great tango masters including Piazzolla, Pugliese and Gardel. Tango Fire combines the rawness and sophistication, seductive and sultry side of tango, evoking the intoxicating passion of late night Buenos Aires.

Tango master Germán Cornejo and his partner Gisela Galeassi have been performing together since 2010. They have mastered the skills of Argentine tango, incorporating classical dance, contemporary dance, jazz, ballet and acrobatics. Germán and Gisela became World Tango Champions in 2005 and 2003 respectively, and have collectively won forty gold medals at national tango competitions. They have received critical acclaim all over the world performing in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Since its formation in 2005, Tango Fire has become a worldwide phenomenon and a leading tango company. With sell-out performances, a YouTube audience of over 20 million and a legion of fans across the globe, Tango Fire brings this dynamic genre of dance to life.

London’s many dance enthusiasts need no reminder of Sadler’s Wells position as a world-leading dance house, committed to producing, commissioning and presenting new works and to bringing the very best international and UK dance to London. From contemporary to flamenco, Bollywood to ballet, salsa to street dance and tango to tap, it has helped to bring over 90 new dance works to the stage, since 2005, and its award-winning commissions and collaborative productions regularly tour internationally.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
