Movie and Milonga Night 28 June
We are back from another truly amazing Tango Festival, exhausted but happy!!
We have danced our socks off and are ready to keep dancing this Friday night at the Monthly Movie and Milonga Night. I am very excited to bring to you another great tango documentary which will touch your hearts followed by a few more hours of dancing together.
The documentary this Friday night is called "La Confiteria Ideal"
This film examines La Confiteria Ideal, a Buenos Aires dance hall where fervent devotees of tango flock to escape everyday life.
Included in this documentary are wonderful interviews with famous milongueros: Gerardo Portalea, Javier Rodriguez & Geraldine Rojas, a young Mariano "Chicho" Frumboli with his dreams of his future and Puppy Castello. Also interviews with everyday people about their experiences of and at La Confiteria Ideal.
If you have been to this milonga in Buenos Aires you will recognise some of the locals who frequent there to this day! You will also recognise it as the famous milonga that was highlighted in Sally Potter's The Tango Lesson. This is a great opportunity to introduce your non dancing friends to tango and to give them a taste of our Nelson tango community.
Non dancers $10 for the evening. (Its cheaper than going to the movies!)
