Together since 2013, Martin and Chiara have been dancing in numerous theatre productions and promotional events around Austria – where they are currently based –  such as the Concordia Ball (2018, Rathaus), TU Ball (2017, Hofburg Wien), the Embassy of Argentina in Vienna, and the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien during the presentation of their Musical “Evita” (2016, Raimund Theater). They worked with musician-composer Diego Collatti & his “Minimal Tango Ensemble” (2016, ORF Radiokulturhaus), orchestra director Pablo Boggiano in the Tango-Opera “Maria de Buenos Aires” (2017 and 2015, Theater Akzent), and Flamenco choreographer Marco de Ana in “Insistencia” (2016, 11. Burgenländische Tanztage – International Dance Festival), and  “Salon Klimbin” (2014, Museum Secession Season Opening), as well as with Sergio Cattaneo (2018, 2015 and 2014, Theater am Spittelberg).

 

Abroad, they have worked with dancer-choreographer Guillermo Berzins in “Tango Fatal” (2019 and 2018), artistic director Adriano Mauriello in “Revelacion Tango” (2017, Teatro Sistina in Roma and Teatro Duse of Bologna, among others), and have performed at the Waldorf Hotel in London, as well as in numerous other events in the UK, such us the International Dorset Tango Festival in 2018 and 2017.

 

In Vienna, they are the Managing and Creative Directors of the Tango Atelier, where they work as Trainers and Instructors of Tango Salon, the social art-form of Tango

NITO & ELBA

“living legends of Tango”

Together they are the living legend of tango. Argentines Juan Aurelio García and Elba Natalia Sottile, known artistically as Nito and Elba, add “almost 160 years between the two” and for more than 40 years they have been dancing partners at the milonga and in life. Luxury masters at the Vienna Tango congress, for the second time in Vienna, they are here to teach the secrets of their “fantasy lounge” dance.

GUILLERMO & MARIJANA

Guillermo Berzins was born in Buenos Aires. At the early age of 6 he entered the dance world and is now a world-renowned Argentinian tango teacher, dancer, choreographer and organizer of important events related to dance. He is also a member of the International Dance Council (CID UNESCO) and of AMBCTA (Asociación de maestros, bailarines y coreógrafos de tango argentino).

Guillermo stages dance performances, holds classes and workshops all around the world, excelling in several festivals, stage, television and film productions. He served on the jury in many international dance competitions.

Marijana started working in the company “Tango Fatal” in 2014, and became prima ballerina of the company in 2018, pairing with the choreographer of the company Guillermo Berzins. She currently teaches tango regular classes with Simone Pradissitto in Portogruaro and Vittorio Veneto, in Italy and continues performing with Guillermo Berzins in Europe.

LEO & TRACEY

Leo’s Tango career spans over 50 years as he comes from a traditional Tango family – he was taught by his father from 7 years old in Buenos Aires. His style of Tango is unique and authentic and reflects years of being brought up and living amongst family and friends who themselves loved Tango – not only as a dance but also it’s music, poetry and philosophy. He has developed his own unique methodology of teaching Tango and with his partner and wife Tracey, has created and produced his own teaching book.

Tracey has danced Argentine Tango for over 16 years. Her background training of Ballet, Ballroom and Latin American Dancing, allows her to help people trying to adapt from other dance styles to Argentine Tango so that they dance the real Tango not a mix of styles! She has had extensive training of Argentine Tango with Leo over the last 10 years.

Together they have taught and performed in numerous places including Negracha Tango Club, at the prestigious London Waldorf Tango Supper, and the Blackpool Tower Ballroom to name but a few. They have also taught abroad in Vienna, Sicily and Sardinia but prefer to concentrate on their activities at home in the UK. In 2013, they were the first professional Argentine Tango couple to create their own Teaching Methodology, Syllabus and Diploma under the name of ‘The London Argentine Tango School’ based on the teaching of Leo’s father and Leo’s experiences which was the first of its kind to be presented in the UK. This culminated in them writing and publishing their own book – The ABC of Argentine Tango – which can be purchased directly through them or via Amazon.

Leo and Tracey have worked together for over 10 years and during that time have taught 100’s of students throughout the UK how to dance the social, improvised art form of Argentine Tango. This is something they both passionately believe in, to the extent that every single one of their performances are also improvised.

They dance exactly as they teach and are committed to preserving and teaching this wonderful art form of the social dance so that many more people can enjoy it in the future.

COMPAÑIA OUR TANGO

“Our Tango” is a production that loosely identifies with the stories of 3 generations of a family of Tangueros. Besides depicting the history of the city of Buenos Aires – from the time of the ‘20s to the ’40s, the ’60s to the ’80s and to the present time, it also portrays the magic that is hidden within the streets of this port city. This aspect is illustrated by the fates of the diverse characters within the piece.
“Our Tango” is a young Company assembled from artists from across the world that has a lot of background knowledge and potential. The company mixes Tango in it’s purest form with the revolutionary Contemporary Dance, to find a point where both dance styles meet in harmony.
The Cultural City of Vienna was chosen for their Debut and is the starting point of their forthcoming Worldtour.
Director: Martín Acosta (Dancer and Choreographer)
Idea: Leonardo Fandango (Dancer, Singer and Writer)
Musical Accompaniment: Orchestra Garufa

COMPAÑIA TANGO FATAL

TANGO FATAL is an international Argentine tango dance company based in Trieste (Italy). The idea for Tango Fatal originated with Guillermo Berzins, a world-renowned Argentine tango dancer and choreographer, who decided to bring the magic of this passionate dance to Europe, continuing the tradition started by many illustrious predecessors who made Argentine tango well-known and loved worldwide.

The show has a big emotional impact. Thanks to skilful and innovative lighting, the sensual and mysterious porteño atmosphere comes to life on the stage, all the same maintaining an abstract, suspended in time setting. This is why it always seems up to date and contemporary and it never diverts the audience’s attention and focus from dancing, which remains the foremost element.

Dancing on the romantic and dramatic melodies of the most well-known tangos while combining rhythms from different tango ages with Argentinian folklore’s infectious energy and astounding contemporary choreography, it’s a pretty safe bet that TANGO FATAL will fascinate you!

In addition to the stage show, presently on tour in several European towns, with its ensemble of 19 performing artists, TANGO FATAL can offer customised events using various personnel meeting any need and request.

ORQUESTA CORAZÓN DE TANGO

CORAZÓN de TANGO is a tango project founded by exceptional violinist Oksana Peceny, first violin in Slovene National Theatre in Maribor. Her tango story started back in 2005 when she joined Astorpia Quintet. They performed on biggest stages in Slovenia and in some places abroad

ORQUESTA GARUFA

Our group has made presentations in Europe since 2010. In this way, we have evolved in program and concept, transforming our proposal, unique in its genre, into a coming and going of ideas and stories that represent our own and others’ cultural traits. At our concerts, you can appreciate, for example, the history and evolution of Tango, as well as the similarities and contrasts between Latin American and European cultures. The link is, in a large part of the program, humour. As an almost inevitable consequence of our academic musical training, our presentations, with a recital or concert format, offer the public new and mixed-nature ideas, such as a Tangoretta (hybrid of Tango and Operetta) or musical pieces where interspersed Milonga and the Candombe with Mozart’s Magic Flute. “

SEXTETO MILONGUERO

Sexteto Milonguero formed in 2006 by Javier Di Ciriaco (Singer).

The style of the group, has a beginning, in essence, danceable.
