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.

House Musician: Alan Nguyen, Violin
Stage Manager: CJ Yetman

Wir haben 2018 mit Altertango experimentiert und sind nun bereit, unsere erste offene Veranstaltung, Donnerstag 25.Okt-29.Nov 2018 im Lotus Loft, Gerichtstraße 23, Aufgang 4, zu veranstalten.

Tänzer, die an unseren experimentellen Altertango-Veranstaltungen teilgenommen haben, beschreiben die Erfahrung als “kostbar”, eine unwiederholbare, seltene Erfahrung der Verbindung mit einem Musiker. Dies inspirierte den Namen unserer Veranstaltung:

Ein Tryst ist ein seltenes und heiliges Treffen.

Wir werden 2018 nur 6 Konzerte im romantischen Lotus Loft haben. Wir tanzen zu Live Solo und Duo Improvisierenden Musikern und spielen ätherische Musik. Wir werden einen Bereich zum Zuhören und zum Betrachten des Konzerts und einen separaten Bereich zum Tanzen haben.

I want you to know that you are not alone…

embrace orig crop

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?

Important Insights

Books

Power is the courage, confidence, and competence to make things happen. I want to create in a way that’s incomparable and define my own compensation package. You too?

Syntax of Power is a raw, potent, and spare revelation of how I got to where I am and how I take on the struggle every day.

This book is not about tango, it’s about everything else.

It’s about stepping into the darkness of change, learning how to take care of yourself, and making things happen.

Dyv stands for Duro y Vio. We were inspired by a 2007 conference at Harvard University about tango as a transnational culture. Also we wanted to create something that would help people to imagine a queerer tango. We forbid ourselves to use the word ‘passion’ and instead tried to articulate the experience more precisely.

Argentine Tango is more than an elaborate and difficult dance, it is an international culture of intimacy, desire, and dignity. No mere romance or memoir, the intricately woven stories evoke tango’s true mysteries … the elation, the frustration, the compulsion…

We published the book in 2009. Dancers asked “how did you know what I was feeling?”

Silences in history. Silences by code. Silences of fear. You already know that Tango’s silences can be sublime and they can be devastating.

What I do in my blog is use myself as a lens – sometimes a microscope, sometimes a telescope. I try to be as honest with myself and you as words concede. Then I try to find a deeper meaning and imagine a pathway for us.

A blog post can be a fragment, a wisp of inspiration, an outline for thinking. A book must complete and reconcile it all. Now I drag the social scientist to the scene to enumerate the facts of the case, the mystery which brought both stardom and tragedy to my life.
