Tango Takes Flight
You know that a show is gonna work here in Miami when we already know how to pronounce the name: 8cho, like “oh-cho,” like Calle Ocho. 8cho is an Argentine production that fuses Cirque du Soleil with tango, electornica with aerial stunts. Yep, there’s a reason they call this a “high-flying spectacle.” Created by one of Argentina’s leading choreographers, Brenda Angiel, this show involves seven dancers doing their entire routines above the stage, suspended by ropes. They incorporate tango moves while navigating the area 20-feet in the air, to an original score that mixes tango and electronic music. While 8cho has been playing in cities across the globe for several years, this will be the South Florida premiere, Arsht Center for the Performing Arts (1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami). It runs from June 21 through June 30 at 8:00 p.m., with Saturday matinees at 200 p.m., and Sunday shows at 5:00 p.m. Tickets range from $35 to $75; www.arshtcenter.org
