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.

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.
