They are creators, choreographers and stars of their production “Tierra y fuego que camina”. The title of this dance theater show, is inspired by Atahualpa Yupanqui, an Argentine poet and artist. Earth and fire is the landscape of the world and the human heart where the essence of tango is always found. The show traces the experiences of two people celebrating life in each movement, in each melody both human and divine, two pilgrims in search of dreams, and pilgrims of a road that never ends. Their tango brings the action of the big city and nature, as pure and elemental as Earth and Fire.
