A man is taken to an empty room. He is joined by two women. Nothing can prepare them for what lies in store. There are no windows or doors – only the faint pulse of distant tango music. Fuelled by desire, jealousy and fear, the three captives make uneasy and shifting alliances, using their memories and their sexuality as weapons of power and torment.
Grounded in the blood and sweat of Argentina’s brutal Dirty War, Luke Kernaghan’s production unites a dynamic group of artists and performers to create a bold and breath-taking new look at a beloved classic, powered by choreography from Kele Baker (Argentine Tango choreographer for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing). Jean-Paul Sartre’s violent and unflinching study of cruelty and death is brought vividly to life through an exhilarating and erotic blend of text, music and tango. This visceral production grasps you by the hand and leads you through a dangerous yet seductive underworld.
