La Propuesta in New York
March 24 @ 8:37 pm EDT
“La Propuesta” was founded by Carla Marano and Octavio Fernandez in Buenos Aires. The space was designed for the study, experimentation and research of tango dance through interaction with different artistic disciplines with the aim of enriching the dance itself.
On this occasion, Carla and Octavio are proposing a deep experimentation of multiple threads at once namely improvisation musicality, connection, structure, embrace and technique.
Each workshop will dedicate its first hour to exploring the proposed tango element of each week, followed by two hours of experimentation with weaving those elements into the above threads.
Friday, June 16th – 8pm to 11pm
LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS: FRONT SACADAS
In this lab, we shall open our tango tool box, and put into practice the mathethetics of leader and follower sacadas by first discerning the numerous possibilites and mechanics of achieving each variation.
Friday, June 23rd – 8pm to 11pm
GIROS AND BARRIDAS
In this experiment we shall explore the permutations of combining two classic tango elements, Giros and Barridas, and discover the spectrum of sponteneity, playfulness and visual effect that this combination can provide in our dance.
$30 one workshop – $50 two workshops
