Review of "Tangos From Here"

Pamela Squires reviews the Sharna Fabiano Company's tango/modern dance performance in Washington, DC.


Sharna Fabiano Tango Company's attempts to marry social tango with modern dance fell short in "Tangos From Here" Saturday at Dance Place.

There were several forces working against this marriage. Most of the dancers weren't nearly as good at modern dance as they were at tango. Also, social tango is like a walled garden: The magic is inside, between two dancers, and energy is directed inward. Modern dance, on the other hand, directs its energy at the audience, like a house that opens to the street. It's hard to put the two onstage at the same time without them looking mismatched.
