We have been making experiments with Altertango throughout 2018 and we are now ready to host our first open event, Thursdays 25.Okt-29.Nov 2018 in Lotus Loft, Gerichtstraße 23, Aufgang 4.

Dancers who have attended our experimental Altertango events describe the experience as “precious”, an unrepeatable, rare experience of connection with a musician. This inspired the name of our event:

A ‘Tryst’ is a rare and sacred meeting.

We will have just 6 concerts in 2018, in the romantic Lotus Loft. We’ll dance to Live Solo and Duo Improvising Musicians, playing ethereal music. We will have an area for listening and watching the concert and a separate area for dancing.

Musical Director: Antoine Gallix (musicians who would like to participate may contact him at
House Musician: Alan Nguyen, Violin
Stage Manager: CJ Yetman
