Pablo Verón

Real name: Verón, Pablo
(17 October 1971 - )
Place of birth:
Silvina Damiani

ablo is synonomous with virtuosity in tango. His dance has character, technique, and, when it’s called for, constitues the perfect link between the traditional tango and the new esthetics.

His professional career began in 1986, when he danced in several musicals such as Evita, Cabaret and Sweet Charity, among others.

In 1988 he played the protagonist in the film Cipayos (Sepoys), by the Argentine fimmaker Jorge Coscia. The first experience on the big screen is reflected in his second work for the cinema: The Tango Lesson (1997). In it, under the direction of the British director Sally Potter, Pablo displayed his talents as dancer, choreographer, and actor. It’s worth noting that said film won the Argentine Festival of Cinema that year.

Pablo Verón worked with great directors such as Alfredo Arias, and his electrifying dancing caught the interest of more than one publication. The newspaper Liberty of Paris called him «the best dancer in the world» and Time Out affirmed: «Pablo Verón has the feet of God».

Without a doubt, Tango Argentino (the marvellous show made by Segovia and Orezzioli) was a turning point in his career, which developed essentially in Europe, where the lights of both tango and Tap shine brightly.
