NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. Featuring exquisite dance numbers, gracious performances, and a hint of the surreal, this Argentinian drama finds Buenos Aires psychiatrist Ezequiel Kaufman (Gastón Pauls) flummoxed by his new patient Fermin (veteran actor Héctor Alterio), a prickly octogenarian who communicates only in tango lyrics. As the connection between the two men grows, and as Ezequiel falls for Fermin’s dance-instructor daughter, we are transported back to Buenos Aires in the 1940s, where Fermin navigated love and betrayal as one of the city’s most popular tango dancers. Surrender to the power of Tango!
