Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Milonga. The eclectic and talented Belgian/Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who continues to seek new ways to dance and to communicate thanks to his collaboration with artists of different backgrounds, turns to tango for inspiration. Taking the idea of a milonga as a starting point Cherkaoui draws on traditional influences and idioms and adds a contemporary twist. Most of the dancers on stage are tango dancers, but there are also a couple of academically trained performers as well as a live tango orchestra.
