Our exhilarating devised piece was inspired by and created out of a classic tango score. Audiences arrived at a beautiful but seedy bar, where a charming gangster was holding court as an otherworldly group of musicians played…As the sounds of tango filled the air, extraordinary events unfolded, as the question was asked: “When the music plays, who takes control of your soul?”

With a post-show tango session this was a unique piece of theatre.

“With Hothouse, Teatro Vivo have injected new life into the concept of theatre and created an exciting new world where anything can happen and everything is possible” Matt Jenkins, Newsshopper
