Canadian Tango (2009)

Canadian Tango

A new couple, in their thirties, struggle with cultural differences in this two-hander that mixes text with tango to tell the story of a critical time in the life of fiery Graciela, an Argentinian art curator, and John, a coolly-contained Canadian bureaucrat. Set in present-day Victoria BC, we wonder if Graciela and John will make it through their struggles. Tango, with its passionate music and intricate moves, provides the perfect metaphor for the battle of the sexes.

Canadian Tango 09 promises to be an exciting workshop production of the first draft of a play dealing with a dilemma faced by many of today’s couples.
