NeoTango weekend in the nature 6-8 September at De Uelenspieghel

Theme: Connection

After the big success of the first 3 editions Ezequiel & Lydia will be again in Uffelte with a Neo Tango weekend full of connection!!!

Focus of this late summer weekend is:
How can we dance in connection? Listening the leading and following, understanding the dynamics of organic movement, getting into the flow of dance, finding elasticity in our dance, experiencing freedom while staying connected with my dance partner and staying loyal with the essence of tango? What can influence in the connection with each other? Surprises, magic and beautiful music.

Inspiration:
To connect even more to listen, understand and dance even deeper. Flow, elasticity, grove to different kind of music to inspire our tango dance in diversity in movement and quality.
What kind of connection is happening between me and my partner in the dance?

New production: Verlangen

New production: Verlangen

Dit tango muziek- en danstheater stuk gaat over mensen die verlangen en behoeftes hebben en deze niet kunnen bevredigden. Zij voelen eenzaamheid, onveiligheid, onrust en de druk van het moderne leven. Zij verlangen naar zekerheid, waardering, vreugde, vrijheid, en een relatie met de persoon van hun leven. Zij zijn op zoek naar iemand, iets of uiteindelijk zichzelf.

De dansers en muzikanten zoeken hun Verlangen met de ritmes en bewegingen van de hedendaagse Argentijnse tango en folklore.Tango Now & Trasnoche Trio moderniseren deze dans- en muziekstijlen die de gevoelens van verlangen in zich dragen. De muziek van Astor Piazzola, en andere moderne tango componisten gecombineerd met de Contemporary Tango choreografieën van Ezequiel Sanucci zijn de perfecte combinatie om deze verhalen op een ontroerende manier te vertellen.

Choreografie: Ezequiel Sanucci
Dansers van Tango Now: Lydia Müller & Ezequiel Sanucci
Muziek van Trasnoche Trío: Santiago Cimadevilla, Mark Arthur Wyman & Elliot Muusses
Duur: 30 minuten
