to RED ARROW AIR DISPLAY JUST BEFORE WE STARTED OUR TANGO SHOW...
too many good things at the same time. It was a real priviledge to dance after the mega air show!
We were so moved when se saw those photographs Silvia took a year ago.... the photos we were not even expected to see one day.
We also found some samples of our performance inside the Waterfront, as the first day of the festival was rainy.....
And even a collection of photos in the Waterfront museum on the first floor, with its impecable wooden floor, where we presented our ' Tangomorphosis' .
We found last year's performance in Dylan Thomas Centre ( Godness gracious me, how much tangos and venues here last year! one forgets so easily... if it was't for the blog...).
The last photos were those taken together, after our workshops in Rugby Club, already bygone, therefore those photos are absolutely historical! Here we are together with Silvia and Heather!
I found it simbolical that the last photo of Silvia's collection was us with our two most important organisers this year! Our guardian angels!
Neither Silvia nor Heather could not dance tango during our this year's visit. Having the most terryfying ordeal for a tanguero/a- problem with leg/foot- they put all their energy and enthusiasm for tango and us ( we could absolutely feel this reciprocal love in this example) in organising, feeding, pumpering, driving, taking care of, driving and SPOILING US SHITLESS during our Welsh DAYS.... Therefore we made ourselves a promise: EVEN if the circle of tango addicts in Wales will get misteriously reduced to a few and even if our reciprocal love will come to and end- if there is SILVIA and Heather ( and our Heather and Janette...) here in Swansea- WE SHALL STILL COME!
Maybe only for the sake of Silvia's gravy?
Anyway: Monday evening. Brand new tango venu in a beautiful waterfront building: ICE HOUSE. Perfect floor. The newly transformed/rearranged/resurrected club is showing us their new faces. Completely different experience than last year in a rather gloomy Rugby Club with stormy attendence; or in St Methiew's church when Adriana made sure that ' all the sheep of the herd ' were there, in front of the lord of tango. Ice House might bring a fresh breeze to a new tango club, but .... it was like starting it all over again!
On Tue we had a different venue: DEMARCO's studio.
The private classes were followed by the group workshop- the photo misssing- were the half of the attendence were the ballroom dancers of Mario's studio. The mix of tangueros and ballroom/latin dancers and the obligatory rotation of the couples resulted in possitive exchange of experience - the ballroomers could feel the REAL LEAD of tango and got totally contaged!
Therefore, there is still a gap for the hilarious photos Keith was taking and the art film of our performance.
