Tango (2013)

Tango was created as a parody of the ballroom dance craze.  5 dancers perform with a string quartet to Astor Piazzolla’s “Libertango”.  The scene is set as each dancer enters the space with a music stand and begins vocal warm-ups.  The musicians enter and send the dancers into the space prompting full-bodied movement in the contemporary style with hints of tango and lots of personality.  This piece was choreographed and performed in collaboration with the “ASC Strings” under director, Professor Qiao Solomon.
