Tango Glaciale had its début at the Teatro Nuovo in Naples on 27th January 1982. Directed by Mario Martone are Andrea Renzi, Tomas Arana and Licia Miglietta on stage, all four being members of the Falso Movimento company. That evening, not only was a fundamental piece added to the panorama of the new Italian scene, but a new season was inaugurated, comprised of bodies, stories and visions of extraordinary emotional intensity.
Following the neo-avant-guards of the 1970s, the 1980s commenced afresh with a ‘New Spectacularity’, between theatre and dance, rock music, pop aesthetics and cult references.
After almost forty years, Tango Glaciale comes back to life with a new cast in a set-up devised not only as an opportunity to capture the importance and beauty of the show and its era but also as a connection of different languages and a range of common feelings. Or – as Martone himself affirms – to: «Subject the work to the test of a generation that hadn’t even been conceived in 1982».
