When Argentine choreographer German Cornejo stages shows celebrating the passionate steps of tango, he starts at the most logical place: with the dancers. The five couples that make up the Tango Fire company move with their own individual rhythms and impulses, with each pair choreographing their own sultry solos. Cornejo then works with them to refine the steps and create a cohesive act. The result? An electrifying, physical journey following tango's rise from its origins in the dance halls of Buenos Aires to its current place in popular culture. Supported by a live band, as well as a talented young singer and some talented young shoes, the performers spin, dip, kick, and embrace their way through the history of one of the world's most iconic dances.
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
