This week we open up our dancefloor as we welcome Tango Siempre to take us into the world of Argentinian tango.
World-famous for our Library, every concert will also respond to themes suggested by our collections and will feature pop-up displays of original historical materials. You can expect anything from holiday getaways of the past to the lives of 1930s East End anti-fascists to be covered.
The concerts run for no more than 40 minutes, so you can bring your sandwiches along to enjoy while you listen to world-class performers - then be back at your desk before your lunch hour is up.
Meet the Artist
Tango Siempre are the UK’s leading tango company. Since 1998 they have toured the UK and Europe with projects ranging from traditional tango dance shows to collaborations with orchestras, contemporary dance companies and internationally acclaimed jazz musicians. Their repertoire consists exclusively of original compositions and of music that they have transcribed and arranged from historical recordings of the great Argentinian orchestras and of Astor Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango ensembles.
