Join us for First Fridays and Art Starts at the Library on Friday,  June 2nd and be treated to a lively performance by Cucharada!

The performance will take place at 5:30 p.m. on the Rooftop Terrace at Kansas City Public Library Central Library14 W 10th St.  Click here to learn about the other exciting exhibits taking place at the library that evening including a pop-exhibit in Kirk Hall entitle Indisposable, showcasing photographs by people currently experiencing homelessness,


Kansas City Tango ensemble Cucharada intends on being true to the aesthetic while carving out their own interpretations. Some of it is time-tested material while other selections are culled from more recent “Nuevo-Tango” acts. All of it is distilled through a conception of what just a few people can do with a broad palette at hand.  Tango dancing is permitted, and encouraged!


This performance is free and open to the public, and is part of the 2017 Art in the Loop Project:  Cue! The project is made possible through the generous support of KC Streetcar; the City of Kansas City, Missouri; the Missouri Arts Council; Arts KC and our corporate sponsors including Stinson Leonard Street, Henderson Engineers, JE Dunn Construction, McCownGordon Construction, Port KC and UMB Financial Corporation.
