Tango Masculino

by Clint Jefferies
Directed by Barry French

An Australian premiere production presented in association with the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.

With music, dance, lust and passion, TANGO MASCULINO exposes the dangerous underbelly of early 20th century Buenos Aires, a politically volatile and brutal world where men are men and machismo is everything.

"Beautiful tales like this is what Mardi Gras should really be about - the right to love whomever you please." Cream Magazine
