(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Nimbus Dance on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 7:00pm. The boundary-pushing, community-driven modern dance ensemble performs a special program as part of the TD James Moody Jazz Festival—including the world premiere of Raucous Caucus Tango, a collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-winning tango virtuoso Pedro Giraudo.
This creative mash-up of bawdy storytelling, slapstick humor, and exquisite choreography pokes fun at our electoral process, set to the passionate, dramatic rhythms of Argentine tango.
