Dancers Christy Coté, Chelsea Eng, Debbie Goodwin, Michelle Loughlin and Pier Voulkos… are choreographing work that expresses a new tango, a very unusual tango, a tango that is exciting and innovative in the extreme… I can think of few companies that bring such passionate innovation to the very idea of contemporary tango than Tango Con*Fusión.

This version of tango is another step in the evolution of one of the most extraordinary dance genres ever created. While remaining true to its heritage, this is not the tango of yesteryear; it is not even the tango of yesterday; it is the tango of today. Very impressive.
