    Milongueros and the Culture of Transgression Guest Speaker: Flor Argento

    Time:  6:00pm
    This two-part lecture series will celebrate the tango as a popular art that speaks about the encounter of people, music, and dance since its origins in the Rio de la Plata to our current days when it is a worldwide phenomenon. Attesting to its vitality and its global importance, UNESCO declared tango a world cultural heritage in 2009.

    Part II of the Tango Series “Tango, Diasporas, and Encounters”, focuses on the history and dance of the oldest Milongueros (tango dancers) of the Golden Age of Tango (1940s-1950s). They innovated the language of tango dancing by defining its rules and transgressing them. In so doing, they contributed in making the tango an individual and collective celebration — a ritual of music and dance through the embrace of tango where we are all included. Flor Argento brings history and present together in her fascinating work, part of a broader artistic, visual, multimedia project.
