Noche De Tango - Tango Glories

Posted: 16:08, Saturday 9 May 2015 by Lucy Lu

Updated: 15:43, Saturday 9 May 2015 by Lucy Lu

Experience the passion of a live tango performance by Siempre Tango, Adelaide accompanied by Argentinean flavours followed by the special screening of TANGO GLORIES.

8pm arrivals, for 8.45pm screening

Dramatic, colourful and surreal, like tango, the film calls to attention the basic need for connection, passion and forgiveness in life.
Featuring extraordinarily moving performances and stunning dance numbers, this magical story follows Ezequiel, a psychiatrist at a Buenos Aires hospital. When he meets 85-year-old Fermín, a man who curiously expresses himself through the lyrics and titles of old tango songs, Ezequiel is intrigued by his condition which has not improved for decades.
As he probes the cause, the pair begin to connect. Fermín starts to make revelations about his chequered and dramatic past, offering clues to his predicament. Through the blossoming friendship and a newfound love interest in Fermín’s daughter, Ezequiel starts to gain an insight into tango, a cultural expression he had taken for granted. Through this, he uncovers a vibrant, artistic, and exciting Argentina of the past.

Musings on Tango

How would you dance if this is your last song together?

Posted: 00:43, Monday 8 June 2015 by Lucy Lu

Full of emotions in this song. Maybe it is the song itself, or maybe it was Pablo and Noelia’s last song performed together as a couple. She chose a Chilean as dancing partner and married to an Italian later, and she is famous and popular over the world. Do you know who he is?

Tango Did You Know … ?

Posted: 15:30, Monday 20 January 2014 by Janett Jackson

Updated: 16:02, Monday 20 January 2014 by Janett Jackson

‘La cumparsita’ (The Little Carnival Procession) is the most famous tango of all time. It is to the tango what the ‘Blue Danube’ is to the waltz.

Written around 1917 by the Uruguayan Gerardo Hernan Matos Rodríguez (March 28, 1897 – April 25, 1948) as a marching tune for the student federation to which he belonged, it was turned into a tango by the bandleader Roberto Firpo (May 10, 1884 – June 14, 1969).

In 1924 lyrics by Pascual Contursi (November 18, 1888 – May 28, 1932) and Enrique Pedro Maroni (17 March 1887 – 30 December 1957) were added and the song was recorded by Carlos Gardel (born Charles Romuald Gardes; 11 December 1890 – 24 June 1935), with guitar accompaniment.
