Tango in the Dark was created in Buenos Aires during the autumn of 2019 and the winter and spring of 2020. When Covid-19 forced the city of Buenos Aires into lockdown, dancers Erin and Alexander continued creating while confined to their apartment.  After three months in isolation, PointeTango decided to return to Canada so that they could begin filming and continue making art. They reached out to Payadora Tango Orchestra who began recording and filming the music in the safety of their individual homes. The creation of this film would not have been possible without the generosity of our donors. Thank you and enjoy the show!
