Bailamos Opa!
With Dance Guru to the Stars Aliki Mbakoyianni

When an ex-star dancer and wildly successful dance guru begins to feel like an ageing has-been, she decides to take to the stage and reclaim the limelight in a different way. Greek-Argentine global nomad, political activist and single-lady-again Aliki Mbakoyianni has a message for every dance body via a reflection on her own star-studded life.

Journalist, author and playwright Lorna V is an amateur dancer who overcame stepping in the wrong direction (just about) to develop a passion for Argentine tango. Her first full length show as a writer-performer is a feel-good piece with plenty of heart and humour. Through the Greek-Argentine character Aliki Mbakoyianni, Lorna V explores ageing, politics, immigration, and delivers some unexpected and hilarious twists on cultural history.
