The Leonardo Cuello Company anchors its work towards researching

Inside Tango, the Company’s latest production, is an innovative
format within the creative style of Leonardo Cuello,
critically-acclaimed both by specialized press and the public. The
show premiered at the Cooperative Cultural Centre (City of Buenos
Aires) followed by an eight-week cycle of performances in July and
This new show is dedicated to Women —a burning topic that derives
from reflections being carried forward by the whole of society. Cuello
addresses the theme from an utmost “tanguera” viewpoint,
portraying the stories of five iconic women in the tango scene.
It could have been one woman or many more. An intuitive excursion
led to the selected figures, emblematic for their radical involvement
in the makings of tango. Ada Falcón, Sabina Olmos, Gicel Viganó, Tita
Merello and Eva Duarte —each in her own way, with her talent or
story, made a distinctive impression, forever weaving herself into the
deep threads of this River Plate art form.
Inside Tango also delivers a fresh reflection on the timeworn issue of
gender. In the aesthetics of a Tango Show, Cuello concocts an
elegant, profoundly evocative performance that bears enormous
emotional power. By loosening the routine lines already too prevalent
in Stage Tango, he lets unfold in poetic imagery the stories of love
and heartbreak endured by each of these women.
Inside Tango is a novel show, stealing in its beauty and acute
relevance to matters of current concern.
