The Queer Tango Salon: Connecting Bodies of Knowledge will be happening in Paris next month and the full schedule for the 16th and 17th September 2016 is now available on their website. This event brings together prominent queer tango activists and teachers such as Astrid Weiske from Berlin and Gaston Enrique Olguin from Buenos Aires and distinguished academics such as Kathy Davis from Amsterdam and Melissa Fitch from Arizona. Buenos Aires-based queer tango activist, Edgardo Fernández Sesma will be there as a Special Guest and there will be a whole programme of workshops and seminar presentation from the global queer tango community.
“We are very excited about the Salon” says Ray Batchelor, who is co-organising the Salon with academic colleagues from the UK and France. “We really believe this is a unique opportunity for queer tango to reflect on what it is and perhaps, as importantly, where it might be heading in future.”
The Queer Tango Salon is being organised independently of the Queer Tango Project (despite Ray’s involvement), but we are happy to draw your attention to it. If you are interested in going, the Queer Tango Salon is FREE but you have to register.
