NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Returning to New Rochelle by popular demand, members of the Sala 420 Tango Bar from La Plata, Argentina, under the direction of Ruben Gerardo Monreal, will perform a fabulous program of traditional and contemporary tango music, dance and theater on Sunday, October 1st, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm, in the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library.
Performers include Elke Aymonio, a singer, actress and drama teacher; Mariana Fresno, whose dance background includes Tango, Ballet, Modern Dance, Salsa and Folklore; and Diego Ocampo, a graduate of the school of Dramatic Art in Buenos Aires and dancer. All have performed extensively around the world, focusing their passion on Argentine Tango and contemporary influences. Their program, which also includes an internationally renowned pianist and vocalist, illustrate that tango is not only a dance, but is also a form of musical and dramatic expression.
Sala 420 Tango Bar has been performing a variety of tango shows around the world since 1988. As director Ruben Monreal states: “Tango philosophy lies in discomfort. The musicians claim that tango is their music; the singer believes that tango is her sung lyrics; while the dancers insist that tango is their movement. They work together with tension and beauty, and the result is thrilling!” A donation of $2.00 is suggested at the door.
