Atlas Tango Project with dancers of Parasol Arts in “Angels & Devils”
Featuring Tango di Tango by Dallas’ Robert Xavier Rodriguez and local Tango stars from Tango Amor and Evolution Tango! In the Moody lobby: Free Tango class at 7 pm, and Milonga for all from 10 - 11 pm!
Following on the enthusiastic reception of Ben and Gabe’s tango duo in April, we’re bringing you the whole band: Atlas Tango Project.
The group of 5 musicians specializes in the Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla and original nuevo tango compositions. The band is composed of founder James Anderson, (violin), Ben Thomas (bandoneon), Tony Rogers (cello), and Phil Spencer (bass).
They were invited by Colorado Ballet to perform ‘The Angel of Buenos Aires’ in collaboration with choreographer Lorita Travaglia. Weaving classical ballet and sultry tango steps, the work featured stunning movements based on two of Piazzolla’s most loved suites of music – Suite del Angel and Suite del Diablo. ‘Angels and Devils’, an expanded version of the original work, is performed with Travaglia’s Parasol Arts tango group. A sultry, irresistible Diablo and a luminous, ethereal Angel are danced by classically trained ballet dancers in a thrilling mashup of tango and ballet, while two tango couples represent the mortals in this story of darkness and light.
We are delighted to also perform the passionate Tango di Tango of our colleague, UTD‘s prolific composer Robert Xavier Rodriguez. It is a smaller work drawn from the orchestral Tango. Local tango stars adding pizzazz to the evening are: Evolution Tango with George and Jairelbhi Furlong, and TangoAmor with Nasrin Barmaki and Mark Hernandez.

Free Tango class with Nasrin and Mark of TangoAmor from 7 to 7:45 in the Lobby
