8cho: Tango Takes Flight! at Arsht Center Through June 30

You know a show will work in Miami if we already know how to pronounce the name: 8cho, as in oh-cho, as in Calle Ocho. 8cho is an Argentine production that fuses tango, electronica, and aerial stunts in Cirque du Soleil style. Yep, there's a reason this show is called a "high-flying spectacle." Created by one of Argentina's leading choreographers, Brenda Angiel, 8cho involves seven dancers performing their entire routines suspended above the stage. They incorporate tango moves 20 feet in the air to an original score that mixes tango and electronic music. Though 8cho has been playing in cities across the globe for several years, the shows at the Arsht Center mark its South Florida premiere.
