MUSIC


Live accompaniment

Justin Sherburn and his ensemble Montopolis are well-known for creative reimagining of old film scores, particularly classic Westerns. In this special program, pianist Sherburn along with violinist Leigh Mahoney will perform the film score live. This project is the culmination of 20 years of collaboration with composer and arranger Glover Johns Gill (Tosca Tango Orchestra, Glovertango). 

FILM


A reimagined screenplay

Second in the trilogy of comedy westerns that began in 2020 with "The Return of Draw Egan", "A Fistful of Tango" follows the protagonist, William Foxtrot, on a quest for tango, justice, and more tango. The original 1920 film "The Toll Gate" has been edited to support this new story, and comedian Carlos LaRotta has rewritten the movie in the irreverent style typical of the Alamo Drafthouse production Master Pancake Theater.  

DANCE


DANCE

Monica Caivano and Gustavo Simplis of Esquina Tango Dance Studio will start the evening off with a beginner's tango dance lesson. The couple will then perform traditional Argentine tangos while the silent movie, "A Fistful of Tango" plays.
