The Marionette and her Puppeteer are trapped in a relationship of interdependent domination and submission of mind and spirit. The strings that connect their bodies bind their souls in a futile struggle for domination and power until – the zero hour brings the Duende, incarnate spirit of passion and change. He persuades the Marionette to undo her ties and leave behind a life of manipulation and second hand dreams. Her newfound courage and curiosity let her uncover her true identity and boldly venture out to claim the life of passion and freedom she desires.
The stage of IDENTIDAD is filled with light, colors, movement and energy, passion and emotions and music from the most celebrated Tango masters – Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla – to bring the story to life. In genre-busting choreography the all-star cast takes us on a journey through called Argentine Tango. Alongside Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo the cast of IDENTIDAD features dancers Jairelbhi Furlong and George Furlong and Mariela Barufaldi & Jeremias Massera. The music is provided by Norberto Vogel (bandoneón), Daniel Stein (violin), Mark Sonksen (double bass) and Alfredo Minetti (piano).
