Rafael Bonachela's


Soledad is a slick, sexy and emotionally charged duet which explores the wild and tender sides of a relationship. Set to the music of Mexican singer Chavela Vargas and Gidon Kremer’s Hommage to Piazzolla, Soledad was awarded both the Guglielmo Ebreo Prize and the Critics’ Prize at the first ever Biennale Danza e Italia international competition for independent choreographers in 2006.

“A three-section tango embracing seductiveness and the tenseness of a challenging emotional contest, in which the would-be – or possibly have-been – lovers put each other through the physical mill.”

The Times (UK)

“One of the best Bonachela pieces I’ve seen to date.”
