La Nuestra Tango

Building Community Through Dance and Music of Tango
Artistic Discipline: Interdisciplinary
Category: Brooklyn Arts Fund
Grant Year: 2023
Location: Fort Greene

We are a community of teachers, musicians, performers, artists organizers, thinkers, et cetera. whose desire is to shape and facilitate a multi-sensory, embodied, playful experience for participants to investigate the social embedding of the Tango, and the ways we exist within it in all their rich and complicated pains, possibilities, and pleasures. ​ We offer gatherings and happenings that are conceived as inspired acts of resistance to oppressive norms that are still alive and well in tango. We are pushing against the boundaries of tradition and transforming the arts, the culture of tango towards a more humanistic, embodied form which reflects gender equality, equity and empowerment.
