Imagine that you could hook your legs high in the air at lightening speed, that you continued to float after a leap, or that you could turn ochos while you moved together through space horizontally.

Stel je voor dat je benen sneller dan snel hoog in de lucht kunt haken, je na een sprong blijft zweven, of dat je je ocho’s draait terwijl je samen horizontaal door de ruimte beweegt.

In 8cho, the new performance by the Argentinian choreographer Brenda Angiel, everything seems possible.Her Aerial Dance Company, from Buenos Aires, previously created a sensation in the Lucent Danstheater. As the overture for Tango La Haya the group is now back in The Hague, in their only appearance in The Netherlands, with a production in which Angiel combines the Argentine tango with her speciality, modern dance, performed in the air. By having her dancers move on ropes and elastic cords the Argentinian creates a new form of spatiality and a wealth of possibilities with which she can set the steps, nostalgia and sensuality of the tango in a new and surprising perspective. 8cho is performed to live musical accompaniment.
