Originating in the Río de la Plata region of South America—and now enjoyed by dancers all around the world—milongas are places or gatherings for tango and other dances. Join us (and bring your dancing shoes) for a night of Argentine tango at OBERON celebrating Arrabal, the final show of A.R.T.’s 2016/17 Season. Featuring live music with the band from Arrabal.
Doors open at 7PM // Concert begins at 7:30PM
A new tango-infused dance theater piece, Arrabal follows one woman’s quest to understand the violence that took her father and disrupted a nation. Told through dance and the propulsive music of the band Bajofondo, the show features an ensemble and band direct from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Directed and co-choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (choreography, Invisible Thread, Memphis, Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!, Next To Normal) with music by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries) and book by Tony Award nominee John Weidman (Contact, Assassins) Arrabal invites audiences into the underground world of Buenos Aires’ tango clubs for a dance between the present and the past.
