Bovim Ballet from Cape Town is coming to Jozi, bringing their sensual and alluring full-length dance sensation Tango Nights to The Lyric at Gold Reef City Casino for a short season as part of a national tour. The show combines the sensuality of tango with athleticism of rock ballet en-pointe in a high impact production and a visual feast that will entertain audiences of all ages.
Under the directorship of acclaimed choreographer and founder of Bovim Ballet, Sean Bovim, the carefully selected music, masterful lighting by Daniel Galloway, set design by Karl Staub and Bovim’s clever choreography, delivers an unforgettable experience.
Tango Nights offers a powerful fusion of fashion and dance, brought to life through collaborations with international designers such as Malcolm Klûk and CGDT who have designed the exquisite costumes.
Superbly lead by principal dancers Kerryn Howard, Andre Sauer, Tanya Futter and Marc Golderg, the cast take the audience on a dazzling journey to Cafe Tango, where the production is set, telling the unmistakeable love story through tantalising dance sequences that leave the audiences wanting more.
Bovim, who is known for repeatedly pushing choreographic boundaries says, “I use classical ballet because of its physicality, musicality and creativity; to show off extraordinary technique combined with a fusion of styles that has become my own vocabulary”.
Tango Nights began its national tour in February and has already enjoyed sell-out seasons in Cape Town and standing ovations in Durban and Port Elizabeth. Wherever the show travels, audiences and critics alike have enjoyed the vibrant portrayal of dance in Tango Nights:
