Tango in the Dark
Directed and choreographed by: Alexander Richardson
Tango in the Dark is an hour-long show featuring the dancing of Erin Scott-Kafadar and Alexander Richardson. Using original music composed by Payadora Tango Ensemble, as well as contemporary and traditional tangos, director Alexander Richardson has choreographed a show that lights the way through the shadows and mysteries of Buenos Aires and tells a story of two dancers moving to the rhythms of the city night.
‘Tango in the Dark’ will be presented at the Ada Slaight Hall located on the sacred and traditional territories of the Anishinabek, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat. We acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaty signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa peoples. We support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This is particularly important at this time as we are more aware of the devastating impact of Residential Schools and the mass graves discovered.
PointeTango is grateful to have the opportunity to work, dance and create on these lands and we thank the past, present and future caretakers of this land for their stewardship.

Rebekah Wolkstein -Violin
Drew Jurecka -Bandoneón
Robert Horvath -Piano
