Cooking together to inaugurate Flow Tango!

 

Les Cuisiniers Solidaires are on hand at cultural and civic events to make the most of foodstuffs and offer them as gifts, always with the aim of encouraging people to meet, exchange ideas and enjoy each other's company.

Everyone is invited to take part in the preparations and set-up, and to approach others to share a smoothie, a soup or a fruit kebab. Concrete, simple, immediate actions that reinforce solidarity and living together.

DJ Phil, from Toulouse

 

I initiated the beginnings of neo-tango in Toulouse in 2015 ; but
with a desire to mix together neo and traditional Tango. I enjoy
the structure of the milonga ; tango, waltz, tango, tango,
milongo ; with no cortina.
Elie and Sophie offer us three days to ‘ dfisconnect ‘ ; and to
immerse ourselves in their world ; a world both poetic and
unexpected.
We’ll teach Brittany how to tango !!

Elodie copie.jpg

DJ Elodie, from Angers

 

After ten or so years spent exploring the dance-floor as a dancer ; the
catalyst which drove me « behind the turntables » was the desire to help raise awareness of the wealth of the non-traditional musical repertoire.
Convinced that the best way to free the "neo-tango" from its ghetto was to incorporate these tracks into traditional tango sets. I started ,as from 2018, to host evenings where the alternative repertoire had its place alongside the waltz and the milonga. Although my own preference tends to the contemporary repertoire, I revel in the challenge of proposing sets where the two styles converge, and reflect each other ; both to increase the enjoyment of the dancers ; and also to cater for their varied tastes. In the field of music, and in that of dance, we have everything to gain from dialogue and diversity. In a world
where retrenchment behind separating walls is typical of our time.

There is an urgent need to create paths for the exchange and sharing of emotions. It is to this new breath of hope and freedom that Elie and Sophie invite us with "Flow tango" and it is a great pleasure for me to participate inthis adventure as DJ.

DJ Fabio, de Nice
 

It’s in my native town of Naples that I first discovered the tango in 2009. As a Yoga teacher I have worked for many years on the connexions between body and spirit through the power of music,
which can create moments where time stands stiill and we have
access to another dimension. My passion for traditional tango,and my explorations of the neo-tango repertoire have incited me to harmonize and unite the two, and create an atmosphere where no separation exists in the Milonga and both repertoires are present on the same dance-floor.
As from 2013 I have been presenting this new combination in
Nice ; where the barriers between styles disappear in the face of shared emotion.
I have been involved as a DJ in numerous festivals and marathons in Europe ( France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Finland ) where, through my musical choices, determined by sensitivity and emotion,
dancers are given the space and the opportunity to freely express
their feelings.

Workshop "Intention et attention "

We usually think of the tango as being a dance for a couple ; but we can also see it as a triangular relationship linking the two dancers to the music. Seen in this light, each dancer is responsible for their connection to the music, as well as for their relationship to their partner.
This way of looking at the tango gives the dancers more autonomy, more mutual awareness, and also generates a shared responsibility in the creation of the dance.
Dancing the tango becomes a simple and enjoyable means to express one’s musicality, and leads to a sharing together of each person’s personal conception of the dance.
