Join us for a conversation about the development of Arrabal, a new tango-infused dance theater piece, from its creators Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries), director and co-choreographer Sergio Trujillo (choreography, Invisible Thread, Memphis, Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!, Next To Normal), Tony Award nominee John Weidman (Contact, Assassins), and choreographer Julio Zurita (Ni un rastrito de sangre, Tango of the Angel, Peso medio).

Arrabal, which will have its U.S. premiere in May 2017 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, 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. Arrabal¬†invites audiences into the underground world of Buenos Aires’ tango clubs for a dance between the present and the past.
