 “In Buenos Aires, German Comejo is a super-famous name. He is king of tango, the dance that embodies the soul of Argentina. Together with his partner Gisela Galeassi, he has won all the prizes and fronted all the talent shows, but as well as being a peerless dancer he is also a major choreographer. As his new show demonstrates, he is taking tango out of its ghetto and giving it a wider, expressive range.
<…> So far, so predictable. But Cornejo takes the mood and the moves further, incorporating balletic lifts and twists that don’t feature in the classic tango vocabulary. He also introduces a note of ironic wit – how seriously are we meant to take all this macho strutting and romantic posing?
Is it a mating ritual or a formal game, or are the passions on display fo real? It’s a mesmerising spectacle – and whatever you do, don’t slip out before the curtain calls, because the king of tango has one final trick up his sleeve.”
