Formation and Premiere
The company was established in 2005 which marked a new addition to the world of tango. It presented its first production in Singapore which proved to be a great success. In the same year, a spectacular new arrangement was presented during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show was warmly received by the attendees and since then the company has headlined a number of shows at key venues throughout the world.
The Tickling Troupe
Headed by the extremely talented and dynamic, German Cornejo, the dance group includes ten tango professionals. Having the freedom to prepare their own routines, five couples let their artistic energies flow which allows them to come up with highly imaginative dance sequences. The chemistry between the members is matchless and their skills are commendable. This comfort keeps the spirit of the members high and results in smooth functioning of the team.
German Cornejo serves the group as their guiding star. With his broad vision and immense experience, he helps in refining their talents. Cornejo began studying tango at ten and by the age of fifteen, he had a degree along with a distinctive title of Master of Tango. He expanded his dance repertoire by learning jazz, acrobatics and ballet in the following years. Infusing these forms with contemporary tango, he came up with his unique style that placed him among one of the most successful tango masters.
Cornejo has performed in a variety of TV shows, reality programs and live events and has won some of the most prestigious competitions. Among these, Contest for Youth in Buenos Aires, La Viruta and Susana Gimenez are mention worthy. The performing team also includes a quartet of fine musicians and a resident singer.
A Riveting Rush!
The dancers, singers and musicians help each other by sharing their concerns and communicating their stance. Working closely as a team, the musicians mix their irresistible tango beats with the choreography which results in a great experience for the audiences. This hot fusion is not only amusing but also inspiring. Due to their high-energy performances, the company has been praised as “sensual and erotic and authentically Argentinian”.
