Glamour Tango: A Celebration of Women in Tango
Glamour Tango: A Celebration of Women in Tango
Uruguayan pianist/producer Polly Ferman is proud to present "GlamourTango," a unique all-female multi-media music and dance show that pays tribute to the women who, until now, have not been recognized for their early contributions to the irresistible art form. The show includes fascinating and rarely seen black and white films from Argentina, recorded in the early forties, featuring female singers and tango dancers. Polly Ferman has created and produced this stylish production of tango music and dance from South America's Rio de la Plata region, performed by an ensemble of musicians, vocalists and dancers who specialize in the art of Tango.

"GlamourTango" was premiered in Uruguay in 2008 and has since been performed in Argentina and Brazil, Colombia, China and in the U.S. in Chicago , Milwaukee and New York. The all-female cast includes musicians and dancers from South America, the U.S., Korea, Cuba and Germany on piano, double bass, bandoneon, guitar, violin and a singer . Music includes compositions by famed tango composers Astor Piazzolla, Horacio Salgan, Anselmo Aieta, Pintin Castellanos, Rosita Quiroga, Enrique Mendizabel, Daniel Binelli, and more.

GlamourTango marks a multimedia show of music and dance, theatrical set and lighting, created as a tribute to those women who quietly wrote the pages of Tango from the very beginning. This is a unique approach within the Tango style, since all performing artists on this show are female.

GlamourTango, takes the audience on a musical journey through the 20th century, showcasing a fresh and renovated vision of the role of women in Tango.
