Update 10/16: DJ Eli Ambron will join us at the Sunday practica. Woo hoo!
Women, non-binary individuals and LGBTQIA+ are invited to join us for a weekend of in-person discussions, movement experiences and social dancing aimed at re-imagining tango’s past, present and future to better represent the diversity of the people who dance it.
The weekend is conceived of and presented by Phi Lee Lam, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.
One of the main mechanisms for this exploration is The Long Table, a format for discussion, theatricality and public engagement created by Split Britches.
In addition to two Long Table discussions, the weekend features an experiential movement workshop and practica with live music by Heyni Solera (bandoneon) and Teagan Faran (violin).
Tango Stories Episode 72 features Phi Lee Lam, a dancer, organizer and gifted facilitator of tango experiences.
Phi Lee talks about her journey in tango as a queer, gender-non-conforming dancer, and her work creating space for other LGBTQIA+ dancers in tango.
She also talks about The Long Table Weekend, which is coming up in Philadelphia October 16 & 17.
For Program 8 in the Tango en la Terraza series, we are thrilled to present some of the most illustrious tango musicians of our time:
Joining them are dancers Gustavo Rember & Marina Kenny, as well as special guest vocalist Eleonora Barletta.
