"Dancing is dangerous, it has the power to disturb, subvert and confront, and it puts us in touch with the very rhythms of life."
In Backwards in High Heels a middle-class couple, Holly and Jonathon, are well off, successful and bored. To rekindle their fading passion they turn to dance. The move has a surprising effect on their comfortable lives when a mysterious woman introduces them to the fascinating world of tango. A twenty-first century comedy of manners, with tango dancers.
'Sexy and syncopated, paired, promiscuous and predatory; the tango is both a dance and a modern secular symbol.'
3 actors and 2 dancers.
