Tango, to the Pointe
Combining the rigid movements of the ballet with the freedom and passion of the tango might not seem like a good idea for a show, but it works really well thanks to the creativity of dancers/choreographers Erin Scott-Kafadar and Alexander Richardson. Both dancers must be applauded for their physical abilities as they are essentially dancing in a series of short pieces for the entire 60 minutes, with only a brief break during the other’s solo number. Their final number was a worthy finale with some impressive physical steps and balances by both dancers. I expected to feel passion and excitement, which I did, but I did not expect to see humour — especially in the solo number in which Richardson dances with a stick figure. This is one of my favourites at the Fringe, and I recommend it even for people who don’t regularly attend dance shows.
