Our Altertango experiments began on 1.December, 2017 when we were invited to make a dance floor at a concert of Abisko Lights at Wabe. The dancers we invited loved the experience.
We furthered experiments and collaborations with improvising musicians during the Seminar Encuentro Compañeros TangoForge 2018 and launched our first public instance of TRYST 25.October-29.November.
e also integrate improvised music and Altertango events into our seminars and workshops. See our tour schedule.
