“Te Amo, Argentina” Performance Filled with Love and Passion

Posted on 2/3/2015 3:36:15 PM

For the next offering on its Ovations! series, the Lively Arts at Indiana University of Pennsylvania will present Te Amo, Argentina. Celebrating the fascinating and diverse culture of Argentina through dance, live music, and video, Te Amo Argentina will be presented for a single performance on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. in Fisher Auditorium of IUP’s Performing Arts Center.

This performance combines Argentine chamber music performed by the Attacca Quartet, original tango choreography, and commissioned projected animations and visual artwork. Te Amo, Argentina features music from the Latin Grammy award-winning cellist Antonio Lysy, as well as one of the top tango couples in the world, Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo from Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance and NBC’s Superstars of Dance.

Te Amo, Argentina, which means “I Love You, Argentina” and fitting for this Valentine season, uses Lysy’s autobiographical experiences as the backbone for the show’s story arc and sends audiences through different terrains and landscapes of Argentina. The show captures the passion of the culture from the rhythms of the Andes Mountains to the city-street cafés of Buenos Aires. The combination of the live performers with the original animations weave together an inspiring homage to Argentina.

Tickets for this February 11 event are available online, or the event’s ticket page. They can also be purchased at the Hadley Union Building ticket office on the IUP campus or by calling the HUB ticket office at (724) 357-1313.

Tickets are priced at $26 for regular admission, $22 for seniors and groups, and $14 for students and children. Seats remaining will be sold at the door starting one hour prior to the performance.
