Coming soon to Edinburgh Playhouse: Vincent and Flavia’s Tango Moderno
Strictly superstars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace have returned to the stage with their most audacious and thrilling show yet, Tango Moderno. The production opened at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury in September and Vincent and Flavia bring their fiery new show to the Edinburgh Playhouse from Thursday 23rd – Saturday 25th November as part of a major UK Tour.
Tango is the rhythm of the city, the heat of the streets and the pulse of life. Tango Moderno is the irresistible hot new stage spectacular from Vincent and Flavia: dance partners for over two decades, world champions, Strictly favourites and acclaimed West End stage stars, whose previous productions Midnight Tango, Dance Til Dawn and The Last Tango have all been acclaimed, sell-out hits.
Having originally intended The Last Tango to be their farewell tour, Flavia said: “As we were creating our last show, we developed a number of new routines with so much raw choreography. It was thrilling to still be discovering new numbers for Vincent and I to dance, but we just couldn’t accommodate them in the production. We toured the country with the show and were overwhelmed by the support from our audiences and from people asking us to continue. Vincent and I spoke at the end of the tour and we decided that we wanted to continue; we love dancing together, we are having so much fun and a year after our last UK tour, we are more excited than ever to share this new work and show with our audiences.”
The new production fuses together Ballroom, Latin, and Argentine tango to give you a performance that smoulders with desire. With classic steps, they create a Tango for today.
Tango Moderno is directed by Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions (Motown The Musical, The Producers, Dance ‘Til Dawn, Midnight Tango, Love Me Tender).
