Dancers, musicians, singers, but also actresses, poets, and even activists or political personalities, women have breathed tango to life, from its beginnings all the way to today.
The 9th edition of the festival puts women in the spotlight, exploring their place in tango through its evolution. Tango songs are filled with women, obviously, some of them becoming true characters of t he repertoire, like Malena or Madame Ivonne … There is also in the poetry of tango, a particular emphasis on the mythical figure of the French girl, the charming « francesita », gone from « grisette » to « griseta » … « Mina », « percanta », « papusa », « minerva » … are just some of the terms that lunfardo uses in tango to designate women.
Through the work of the artists involved, we will take a look at the feminine imagery of dance, music and poetry, but also at the relationship and cultural roles that have been assigned to both sexes in tango. In addition, we will highlight the characteristics of women’s movements that are part of the growing mobilizations of women in Argentina and Uruguay.
Orquesta : Under the direction of Roger Helou (Orquesta Silencio), the Gran Típica París is a gigantic orchestra composed of musicians from all over Europe, from different groups such as La Orquesta Silbando, Respiro Tango, Tango Trailer, Cuchicheo …. Eager to share and exchange, the musicians meet in Paris since the last 5 years for a thorough work on the playlist of great masters. During this evening they will pay homage to the orchestras of Di Sarli, D’Arienzo, Pugliese, Salgan and Troilo.
