Experience an evening of the world’s most passionate music and dance in a thrilling performance of the acclaimed tango show ‘Subitango!’ touring to venues throughout Ireland from Sept 17th –14th 2003. From the music and dance of early 20th century Buenos Aires to the breathtakingly beautiful jazz-inspired sounds of Astor Piazzolla, Subitango! blazes with the life and colour of this most sensual of art forms.

Subitango! has performed to sell-out audiences in theatres, arts centres and festivals throughout the UK, and the Channel Islands. The show features live music from the UK’s leading tango ensemble Tango Siempre and stunning choreographed dance from the wonderful tango dance couple Mina and Giraldo.

Tango Siempre is a quartet of violin, piano, double bass and accordion/ bandoneon.

Mina and Giraldo appeared in Madonna’s film Evita, choroegraphed the Channel Four film Dance and danced for Deborah Bull's BBC dance season programme. Mina is also choreographer and director of the acclaimed new multimedia tango show Tiempo de Tango which was premiered earlier this year at Sadler’s Wells in London.

“Tango Argentino…a world and a phenomenon brought to life by the Tango Siempre quartet and dancers Mina and Giraldo - an evening of multi-faceted and varied passion” - The Guardian

"Tango Siempre fused their masterly musicianship with stunning dance, creating a virtuoso performance. A spellbound, capacity audience was guided through a wide range of different eras and styles of tango music, much self-penned. The quartet moved dizzily and seamlessly through traditional, classic tangos, faster milongas, waltzes and jazz-based tango." - Newbury Spring Festival Reviews, Newbury Weekly News.
