Raucous Caucus Tango

Nimbus Dance and Grammy-winning Pedro Giraudo depict the full satire and chicanery of American electoral politics in Raucous Caucus Tango.

Raucous Caucus Tango is a novel mash-up of devised theater, exquisite choreography rendered to passionate Tango music, bawdy storytelling, political/cultural criticism, and a tragicomic eulogy for democracy as we once knew it. Raucous Caucus Tango posits an imagined election to beat all elections: the dazzling showbiz glamour of celebrity candidates meets bare-knuckled street politics; naive idealism confronts transactionalism in its most insidious form; back-room deal-making shoulder rubs with sensational tabloid gossip. Could this be the end; our final election, when American Democracy gasps its final breath? A ratings bonanza that earns zillions for our tv news, social media overlords? Or is this the wake-up call that finally brings people back to their senses?
