About the Show
According to the Institute for the Study of Homelessness and Poverty at the Weingart Center, there are currently 44,000 homeless people living in the streets of Los Angeles. Guillermo De Fazio, choreographer, dancer, and writer of Exit 2 to Tango, analyzes and projects this phenomenon through his portrayal of a homeless war veteran, with his mastery of Argentine Tango. With 22 years of Tango performance and travel, Guillermo uses his theatrical tools to expose the melancholy that is dominant in Argentine tango, and in the city of Los Angeles. This theatrical and interactive performance invites the audience to watch, but more importantly experience the nostalgia, irony, comedy, and mixture of emotions that are present in tango, and present in our every day lives here in Los Angeles, California.
