Tango-dance performance by LAOKOONTANGO®

Concept: Ivaylo Alexandroff
Choreography: Ivaylo Alexandroff, Gabriela Pancheva
Musical environment: Ivaylo Alexandroff
Performers: Ivaylo Alexandroff and Gabriela Pancheva

“TANGOMACHINE” is the first of its kind tango-dance performance in Bulgaria, which is created, choreographed and performed by LAOKOONTANGO (Ivaylo Alexandroff and Gabriela Pancheva) and is built up entirely on the aesthetics of Tango and the digital environment. The performance investigates the delicate connection between the classical elegance of Tango de Salon and the creative impressiveness of Tango Nuevo and experiments radically with the endless possibilities of Tango as a dance and the absolute limitlessness of visual form, being deeply inspired by the words of the great tango composer Osvaldo Pugliese: “Nosotros somos un poroto de la máquina tanguera. Un tornillo de esta máquina, nada más.” - “We are a bean from the tango machine. A screw from this machine, nothing more.” [Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, 26/12/1985]

The word “conspiracy” comes from the latin “conspirare”, which literary means “breathe together” or “to act in harmony” - conspiro, conspirare, conspiravi, conspiratus: sound/act in unison/harmony/accord/blow together, Oxford Latin Dictionary, 1982 (OLD) - http://www.latin-dictionary.net/definition/13479/conspiro-conspirare-conspiravi-conspiratus; “to act in harmony toward a common end”, “to act together”, “Conspire.”: The Merriam-Webster.com Dictionary, Merriam-Webster Inc., https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/conspire.

Into the modern world the content “conspiracy” has burdened with a negative conotation! With conviction we accept the original antique meaning, uncompromisingly consecrated to the TANGOMACHINE conspiracy!
