Thursday To-Do: 'Tango Fire'

The passion.

‘TANGO FIRE'
7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $23-$35.

From the Buenos Aires dance troupe Estampas Porteñas, “Tango Fire” comes to Reynolds Performance Hall as part of UCA's “Public Appearances” series. The metaphor in the dance will be hard to miss. Just flipping through the pictures that accompany the bios for the company's dancers — with legs splayed and akimbo, backs contorted into impossible bows and dress slits that come about hip high — is enough, at least for chaste Internet browsers, to get the blood racing. A live quartet, of piano, violin, bandoneon (a cousin of the concertina) and double bass lays down the tango grooves, while vocalist Javier “Cardenal” Dominguez croons. White-hot passion pretty much guaranteed.
