We are delighted to announce a visit from Theresa Faus at The Magic Roundabout Autumn Embraces at Kington Langley Village Hall on 28th October 2018.
Theresa is an authority on tango music who started DJing in 2004 and has run a monthly milonga in Munich since 2005.
More recently, she began to travel with her music (and also to give seminars about tango music). She has DJ’ed in milongas and special events in many parts of Germany, in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Spain, and Buenos Aires.
Talk – 2pm to 3.30pm
‘Women in Tango’ by Theresa Faus
Between 2pm and 3.3opm Theresa will present a talk about tangos with women as authors, musicians, and singers. And tangos where the lyrics express recurrent, stereotypical images of women, among them:
- the unfaithful woman = the ingrate, who ruins her spouse
- the prostitute = the seducer who is at the same time victim of seduction and exploitation
- the mother = the only woman to rely on.
We will listen to beautiful pieces with these topics from various decades, and discuss, apart from the lyrics, the stylistic characteristics of the music, that make these pieces unique three-minutes artworks.
There are only 30 places available at £10 each and they can be booked in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Price on the day if there is availability will be £12.
