Open Call for Interventions
If you are dancer who thinks or thinker who dances, maybe you have something to say or a dance research workshop you want to run? The Queer Tango Salon, London September 15 – 16, 2017 offers a unique space for both.

The organisers of The Queer Tango Salon 2017, Ray Batchelor, Jon Mulholland and Hélène Marquié have sent out a Call for Interventions (15-minutes-paper or 60-minutes-workshop).

Our suggested theme is “The Real thing? 21st Century Searches for Authenticity” but you are welcome to develop your own – maybe looking to the work of our Keynote Contributors – confirmed thus far?

Keynote Contributors
Mariana Docampo founder of Milonga Queer in Buenos Aires
Federico Imperial (aka “San Fede” on Facebook) of La Vie en Rose in Paris
Professor Lisa Blackman from Goldsmiths, University of London

Part of the reason for the success of The Queer Tango Salon 2016 in Paris was the high quality discussions stimulated by enjoyable, thoughtful papers and equally enjoyable challenging workshops.
And the dancing!

We look forward to receiving your submission before July 15, 2017.
