The rich taste palate of Tango
Tango music offers us a universe of atmospheres, tastes and textures. Every orchestra has its own texture and every tango touches a certain feeling. As dancers we are constantly working to translate into our dance what the music tells us. Dancers are transformers, they mediate between music and dance. In fact, dancers share the music experience with their dance partner and dance their story together in dialogue with the music. The question is how to find a way in this complex constellation and how to give the creative processes that go along with it as much space as possible. In the plentiful world of Tango music, we are not quickly running out of taste.
Imagine a tango as a beautiful dish. All your senses are addressed, you taste, you smell, you feel. The dish is prepared in a certain way with the necessary ingredients which gives it that specific taste and texture, and it is further enriched with sublime herbs. The entire cooking process leads to a result that we can then experience and enjoy. Parallels can be found in the music and how we dance to it.
This seminar is completely set up to unveil the richness and complexity in Tango music and dance. It is often said that we have to make it exciting, for ourselves and for our partner. But how? For two days we work on the taste of Tango, the aromas that rise from the kitchen of Tango, the musical herbs and the oh so necessary basic ingredients for a tasty dance. Dance as if you were preparing a delicious dish.
