Argentina's famous Tango Por Dos company, directed by Miguel Angel Zotto, is back in Israel after six years. The company of 14 dancers, six musicians and two singers join together to celebrate one of the hottest dance forms ever invented. Zotto, an Argentine dancer of Italian descent, started out as a rock and roll dancer. In 1988, after appearing in a number of successful tango shows, he teamed with Milena Plebs and founded the company with which he has toured the entire world over the last 16 years. Zotto says his aim is to show tango in its purest form, while injecting modernity to keep the audience coming. His shows takes the audience through the exotic history of tango, from its origins in the streets of Buenos Aires to its different permutations through the 20th century and beyond, from a swanky Parisian nightclub of the thirties to the latest moves of today. The different trends illustrated through film, costume, technique and music. Tango is full of passion, glamor and excitement and as Donald Hotera of The Times pointed out after seeing the show, "An annual fix of the tango suits me very well - more often might be bad for my blood pressure." All the text for the shows here will be in Hebrew. November 2 to 4, at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center in Tel Aviv. On November 6, at the Jerusalem Theater's Sherover Hall and November 7 at the Haifa Congress Center.
