As a tango broken by lies, snapped by the artificial human relationships, emotions and feelings prefabricated by society, that’s life in a brothel in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the twentieth century. BROKEN TANGO 2.0 springs from the purest and darkest soul of the city to eventually arrive at the latest forms of interpreting tango in the particular R.E.A Dance Company’s way. We didn’t want to get stuck to the original and traditional tango, but to show how that early twentieth-century dance has continued to live by transforming itself through the movement of the bodies that inherited its language adding new gestures over the last hundred years. Thus, throughout the show we could see the old (Gallo Ciego, Amurado), new (Escualo, Michelangelo 70) and original tangos (Contra-Bando, Duelo y Malambo). The music is performed by a sextet (2 violins, bandoneón, piano, guitar, bass) and two singer and guitarist who interact on stage helping to recreate an emotional atmosphere in which they engage the audience.
