Raucous Caucus Tango
March 11-12 | 8pm
This powerfully honest show will have you laughing and crying in the same breath! Raucous Caucus Tango is Artistic Director Samuel Pott’s latest choreographic creation, forged with a notable team of artistic collaborators including 2-time GRAMMY award-winning composer Pedro Giraudo, playwright and New Jersey arts leader Alysia Souder, and Jersey City Poet Laureate-Emeritus and actor, Rashad Wright. The team, along with the 9 dancers from Nimbus Dance, weaves a beautifully crafted script, exquisitely rendered dance, and passionate tango music – into a poignant treatise on the state of politics during this tumultuous moment in our nation’s history. Raucous Caucus Tango tells the story of an imaginary election, subversively zinging political parties (of all stripes) and revealing the tragic conflict between hope and pragmatism, idealism and realpolitik. This show is not to be missed!
