WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A tango performance titled “Sin Salida,” a collaboration between French-Argentinian tango company Union Tanguera and the Kate Weare Company, will be performed at 8 p.m. March 23 in Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse. 

This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from the Hilton Garden Inn and the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. 

Built around an embrace in motion, tango demands a continuous connection between partners. By contrast, contemporary dance exalts the meaning of individual movement. These disparate forms come together and meld with emotion in “Sin Salida,” which means “No Exit.” 

Tickets are $30 for adults and $22 for children 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Group tickets are also available to groups of 10 more. Call 800-914-SHOW for more details or visit
