Tanguera is the story of Giselle, a young woman who arrives on the sultry streets of Buenos Aires and meets Lorenzo the dockworker.

He falls in love with her at first sight but, like so many immigrants at that time, Giselle struggles to make a life for herself in this new world and she falls into the hands of the local crook Gaudencio. Her only chance of survival is to dance in his nightclub and we watch as she is transformed into a tanguera tango dancer; someone who seduces men with her dance and sells her body.

Experience the passion, drama and breath-taking dancing in this adrenaline fuelled journey through the sizzling world of the tango. Written and produced by Diego Romay, who was inspired by Matthew Bourne’s Car Man, this award-winning show includes choreography by Argentine dance superstar Mora Godoy and a cast of over 30 talented dancers.

Be prepared join with them on the hot streets of Buenos Aires at the turn of the 20th Century, for an evening of fast and fiery Argentine Tango full of jealousy, love and passion. Can Lorenzo save Giselle or will she be forever Gaudencio’s tanguera?
