Earth & Fire Walking

A Tango Love Story

Written, directed, and performed by Tomas Galvan and Gimena Herrera
With Special Guest, Camila Lima

September 16 - 17, 2023

Earth and Fire Walking is a stereotype-defying love story. Argentine tango and physical theater serve as the expressive languages through which its protagonists ardently intertwine – two wanderers navigating between city life and nature's embrace. Joy. Pain. Love; is as pure and elemental as Earth and Fire. With Tomas Galvan, Gimena Herrera, and Camila Lima.

Their practiced, intricate footwork is mesmerizing as they burn up the Stage with fiery grace... A superb showcase of the most difficult couples discipline in dancing.--Chairman Barnes. American actor & writer

Their precise, fervent attack, perfectly matched, is full of beautiful moves; sharp and exact, an elongated pause, where the next attack of heart-leading-body-to-move takes place... their tango takes us through their urban life and the contrasting desert range of the Andes mountains, where they are from. -- Valerie Jean Miller for

Through tango, Tomas and Gimena told a soulful story about their relationship, their art, and their travels. The show never lagged; it was innovative, engaging, playful, elegant, moving, even (at one point) rather daringly risqué—-and (one of the best descriptors of all real art) always true. -- Audience Reviews
