Milonga en el Teatro Verdi (2012)
Festival de Tango de la Republica de la Boca
This is a short sequence I made for teaching purposes to give my students a feel for what tango dancing is like in the context of a local milonga (tango dance). I shot this particular scene in 2012 during a neighborhood tango festival organized by local musicians in the Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires. This festival is just one of the many neighborhood festivals that occur annually around the city to celebrate and bring visibility to local scenes and local artists. The venue is a historic local neighborhood theater in this neighborhood called the Teatro Verdi. This event was free and open to the public.
