Luis Bravo’s Forever Tango
It may take two to tango, but to tango like this globally acclaimed dance company takes 26 — the number of performers in Luis Bravo’s Forever Tango, onstage at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Now touring after several runs on Broadway, Forever Tango offers dancers swirling and twirling to the accompaniment of a small orchestra under the direction of Victor Lavellen, interpreting themes of love, lust and life. Mostly lust. Theatermania.com called Forever Tango “one of those rare revues with nary a dull moment.” That assessment is likely due to the whiplash-inducing moves and acrobatic techniques now familiar to a vast audience thanks to Dancing with the Stars. “Everybody is recognizing something on the show that has to do with their own story,” director and founder Bravo told The Huffington Post. Bravo modeled the show after his own story as an Argentine immigrant to the United States. “That’s why the show is so successful. Because it’s about humanity, and that relationship between man and woman in the dance. And that, I think, is the most powerful relationship on earth.”
