TangoNyky Duet Evening
The 2021 TangoNyky evening offers fascinating and surprising interpretations of Tango from the perspective of contemporary dance, flamenco and the new circus.
The dance duet, which is the central focus of this evening of dance and music, gives the performer the opportunity for dynamic communication and an intimate presence. The evening’s artistic directors Minna Tuovinen and Martin Heslop have once again commissioned an exciting group of front-line dance artists to choreograph and dance their version of Tango.
This year’s dancers and choreographers are Katja Lunden, Janne Marja-Aho, Jenna Broas, Elina Lindfors, Kardo Shiwan, Wilhelmina Ojanen, Louis Sartori do Vale and Mira Ravald. Mikko Helenius is again in charge of the music together with the Soul String string orchestra.
The evening’s program ends with a joint dance session between the audience and the orchestra.
