Act I: We lure the audience back in time to the origins of tango in the seedy bars of 1920's Buenos Aires, where the outcasts of society struggle with love, betrayal, joy and conflict.
Then to the streets and nightclubs of 1950's Caribbean, to experience the vibrant celebration of love and life that is salsa. The final destination bringing them to the Argentine countryside of the late 1800s, where the gauchos sing and dance amidst danger and conflict.
Act II : The second act shows the audience the contemporary interpretations of the dances with superb lighting and special effects.
