CHOREOGRAPHER - DANCER -PROFESSOR
Valeria Solomonoff is an awarded choreographer born in Argentina and based in New York. She choreographed for Broadway, films, plays and circus and is the creator of her own shows. Her bold work intertwines the fields of tango, modern dance and theater and has been praised by the press internationally. She is a wide-ranging innovator who uses her tango roots to re-imagine new possibilities of partnering.
VALETANGO COMPANY strips Argentine tango to its bare bones, focusing on the dynamic interplay of lead and follow co-creation as the source of a new aesthetic that highlights non-traditional stories. Our shows focus, with humor and wit, on gender dynamics of the social dance floor and the conflict created by power and desire.
VALETANGO LATEST PRODUCTION:
Is a show about the importance and fragility of trust, the experience of distrust and the longing of profound togetherness.

Stage presence is innate: Either you have it or you don't. Valeria Solomonoff has it.
