Tango, to the Pointe

PointeTango—John Hirsch Mainstage

What an amazing and entertaining display of terrific dance by a pair of absolute pros. Erin Scott-Kafadar and Alexander Richardson beautifully perform around a dozen different segments to various musical pieces and a couple of recorded spoken word background audio.

Each piece conveys a different emotion with the music and dancing. They use some vertical light bars on the stage which light up in different colours to help set the scenes. The amazing thing about the dancing is Erin does it in ballet pointe shoes and is dancing en pointe (on tip toe) throughout, hence their Title and Company name.

The finale was set to an acoustic version of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” (it took me a while to identify it) and was done barefoot. The sheer physicality was absolutely amazing with spectacular lifts, spins and combined movements.

The standing ovation was very much deserved. I highly recommend it.
