Following sell-out seasons in New York, Barcelona, Hamburg, and Cape Town, Argentina’s hottest dance company, Tango Fire, returns to the Peacock Theatre with its brand new show, Flames of Desire.
With some of the speediest footwork and tightest twirling in the business, this sizzling show takes audiences on a journey through the history of tango, from its origins in the dance halls of Buenos Aires through to its growing popularity as a contemporary dance form. Flames of Desire features ten sensational dancers including three world tango champions, one of Argentina’s finest young singers and Quatrotango, a quartet of brilliant musicians.
