June 9, 2013 In Mannen van de Tango choreographer Neel Verdoorn takes the pure Argentinean dance as the starting point for new forms of tango. Dance and music have equal status, as in all ID productions. The innovative pianist, composer, arranger and conductor Osvaldo Pugliese is a source of inspiration in this production. The Zárate quintet, conducted by Micha Molthoff, plays beautiful, pure transcriptions of arrangements from Pugliese’s repertoire of extreme rhythms, earthy authenticity and unadulterated power. Other composers – similarly characterised by their groundbreaking style – will also be featured, but Pugliese is nonetheless the leitmotif in this production. Internationaal Danstheater presents a performance where fascinating spatial patterns are interspersed with the intimate narration of two people’s stories through the medium of dance and music. Attraction and repulsion, shimmering heat and passion, confusion, losing one’s way… until finally you reach your longed-for destination. Performances: Friday, 7 June 2013, 20.00 at Gedung Kesenian Jakarta Sunday, 9 June 2013, 16.00 at the Erasmus Huis Wednesday, 12 June 2013, 19.30 at Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta

Mannen van de Tango. Tango is the music of the people, straight from the heart. It has its roots in the tenements of Buenos Aires. Born of a wistful longing for home, this melancholy music, song and dance developed into a source of comfort for European immigrants to Argentina. In the tango salons of the 1940s, it was the men who set the tone. Men in a constant duel for the seduction of the woman. With the dancefloor as their arena, moving towards the acceptance of the invitation. At first the woman seems no more than a bystander and observer. But it is she who leads the harmonious merging in subtle interplay. Performances: Friday, 7 June 2013, 20.00 in Gedung Kesenian Jakarta Sunday, 9 June 2013, 16.00 at Erasmus Huis, Jakarta Wednesday, 12 June 2013, 20.00 at Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta
