“QUANTUM” is a multimedia show in which music, dance and visual projections generate an impressive staging that fuses various styles ranging from baroque, ethnic and lyrical electronic. It is a multi-sensory experience that transports the viewer on a surprising journey. “QUANTUM” is the smallest unit of matter. It is the ﬁnal frontier of our material universe, and the beginning of another in which everything is possible.

As a tango broken by lies, snapped by the artiﬁcial human relationships, emotions and feelings prefabricated by society, that's life in a brothel in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the twentieth century. BROKEN TANGO 2.0 springs from the purest and darkest soul of the city to eventually arrive at the latest forms of interpreting tango in the particular R.E.A Dance Company's way. We didn't want to get stuck to the original and traditional tango, but to show how that early twentieth century dance has continued to live by transforming itself through the movement of the bodies that inherited its language adding new gestures over the last hundred years.

As its name indicates, Complicidad (Complicity) does not imply the synthesis of two diverse but related disciplines, but rather the poetic gesture that arises from the encounter between the two. A dialectic that, based on the investigation of language and movement, supposes the link between the parts without any of them being denatured. Born of invention and experiment, the virtuosity of Complicidad offers a new body inhabited by multiple spirits. A montage in which a visual and sound story unfolds; as a canvas where the presence of mixed techniques that animate the total composition, does not prevent the pure and essential notes of each of the parts that make it up.
CONCIERTO DEL ANGEL
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19 7:30 pm | New York Time

In March 2021 La Grela Quinteto was summoned to pay tribute to the great Astor Pizzolla on his centenary at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, a cycle called "Piazzolla100". For this event, a special repertoire was prepared entirely made up of compositions by Piazzolla and the quintet summoned the singer Inés Cuello, an already established ﬁgure on the current tango scene, who sings regularly with La Grela. On the occasion of the LACW (Latin American Cultural Week) call, La Grela Quinteto + Inés Cuello partnered for a special performance for the Festival incorporating new arrangements of Piazzolla's work that are premiered on this occasion added to the repertoire performed at the Colón, which will soon be part of an album.

CORALIA ARTIS - Acción Solidaria presents on this occasion an eclectic program that brings together prominent and well-known choral themes from the Latin American and European repertoire in different styles. The unpublished arrangements and adaptations written by its director, Maestra Montserrat De La Cruz, turn this repertoire into a very attractive and dynamic choral experience in sound and image. The repertoire will be interpreted in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese, thus bringing together some of the most widely spoken languages on the American continent.
MARYTA DE HUMAHUACA
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 21 7:30 pm | New York Time
Maryta, heir to an ancient culture, carries in her song the Andean sounds with which she was born in Quebrada de Humahuaca, belonging to the Kolla or Qolla ethnic group. Her songs from distant times are linked to those of the indigenous communities with whom she shares and regenerates a current sound, linked to the melodies of the ancestors on this side of the world. Voice, drums added to different wind instruments and even the wind itself from the colorful “hills” of northern Argentina, invite the wonderful energy of the Pachamama (the Goddess of the Earth).
