Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2016-17 season on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 8pm with Argentine Tango company Estampas Porteñas and their newest production, Deseos: Stories of Longing and Desire, a celebration of the greatest artistic elements of Argentina including the indomitable tango, the athletic malambo of the gauchos, and the country’s wide range of musical styles. Tickets are $36-$55 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at
718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).
Created by artistic director Carolina Soler, the production will also include advanced technical elements such as projection mapping, a method of illumination and projection that will transform the stage instantaneously from a train station in rural Argentina, to a milonga in an urban barrio, to an outdoor plaza in Buenos Aires. Deseos promises to be the height of technical production matched by flawless and emotive dancing and ardent, soul-filled music. This internationally acclaimed ensemble of 25 dancers and musicians kicks off Brooklyn Center’s 2016-17 World of Dance series.
