Last Dance Saloon

Two people of a certain age, with tangled pasts, find each other at a dance retreat in Buenos Aires. A spark is lit and their passion smolders – this was meant to be. But one has work and family ties in South America; the other in North Devon. They settle into the frustrations of a long-distance relationship fuelled by regular tango sessions in Argentina, that include unexpected flights of the imagination. And then one of them weighs the ecological consequences.

A multi story mix of stories ancient and modern, music, song and tango.

"A tour de force that provokes, entertains and dazzles."

"Sensitive, funny, moving, poignantly relevant and viscerally relatable."

"I just loved it! It felt like you expressed lots of different threads about what it is to be alive and human at this time of my life, in this age. And you wove those threads into something that for me, expressed a beautiful freedom of the dance of the heart. Thank you both for creating something that could do that... it's very special."
