Tango Pride Show in Buenos Aires!
The new and inventive Tango Pride Show is ideal for those looking to take in a Buenos Aires tango show free of traditions. In partnership with ‘We Are Tango’, Bsas4u introduces the first and only ‘gay tango’ in the city, creating a unique narrative that tells the story of tango and its role in the evolution of society.
Throughout the show, history is recounted in a progressive way: from the tango that was sung and danced at the hotel of immigrants to more contemporary expressions. Audiences here will see an innovative performance featuring same-sex couples, who together present an inclusive show, leaving behind conservative beliefs and prejudices. Passion and intensity are the most significant elements of this charming spectacle.
Tango Pride Show takes place in a cozy bar – in the neighborhood of Almagro – where tables are arranged around the stage, offering visitors a wonderfully intimate experience. While the elegant tango band provides the background ambience, you can also sample some delicious Argentine empanadas (regional empanadas from Salta, Tucuman, Patagonia, and Mendoza.) with some exquisite Argentine wine.
