Proposal IDOCDE 2016 “The Importance of Being [Un]Necessary”

 

Name: Gabriela Zuarez

 

Telephone number: 0031(0)20 7372533 / 0031(0)640238564

 

Title: “Gender, transference and subjective body in the contemporary teachings of tango practice”

 

Content Description:

The presentation of my lecture and practice revolves around the contemporaneity of the tango dance as an evolution from a popular urban dance form till almost a contemporary style. I will show this evolution, in my attempt to approach a political dance form that belongs to a marginalized Argentinian sub-culture which posesses an enormous potential.

At this stage, I am not particularly interested in the sole development of its technique but I am rather interested in the teaching method and the learning process of dance for the new dancers' generations. At this point I want to emphasize cultural and political factors which are playing a huge role in this development of the tango. The intrinsic process of the tango dance in itself has been rather encrypted and obscured till now. The tango dance has been world renowned through an extreme commercialization of the form which has undermined the essential construction of the dance in the local communities and its identity.

 

My concern as dance dramaturge is to look at the construction sources of the tango dance in order to rescue its valuable intrinsic structures and stand points not only for the sake of the teaching methods but also for the sake of the learning processes of the dance and the development of a contemporary art form crossed by the interaction of social and political lines in Argentinian society.

 

Summary:

Lecture followed by a tango practice oriented to contemporary dancers. My main concern as dramaturge is to look at the construction sources of the tango dance in order to rescue its intrinsic structures and pillars. That in order not only to revise teachings/learning processes of the dance but their application to the development of the tango as a contemporary art form crossed by the cultural interaction in Argentinian dance community.

 

Target group:

Contemporary dancers. Maximal 15 couples (30 participants) There is partnering work.
