Dickinson will present a two-part series spotlighting the 100-year evolution of all-male tango in Buenos Aires (1910-2010). Viewed from a queer perspective, the series explores issues of power negotiation, equality, marginalization, sexual identity, acceptance, and rejection.
Part One: Friday, April 12, 2013, Noon -- A presentation of spoken word and dance by Alvin Rangel of Tango Vesre, guest Yebel Gallegos, and members of Dickinson's Theatre Group (DTG) under the direction of Sarah Skaggs.
Part Two: Saturday, April 13, 2013, 7:00 pm -- A concert of tango music and dance featuring performances by dancers of Tango Vesre Alvin Rangel and Yebel Gallegos, guest artists Héctor Del Curto (bandoneón), Ariadna Buonviri (violin), Donovan Stokes (bass), and faculty member Jennifer Blyth (piano).
These presentations are sponsored by the Truman and Beth Bullard Music and Culture Series; the Office of Diversity Initiatives; LGBTQ Services; the Department of Music; the Department of Theatre & Dance; Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies Department (LALC); President's Office of Institutional and Diversity Initiatives; Spanish & Portuguese Department; and Student Senate for the LALC Majors Committee, the Latin American and Caribbean Club, and Spectrum.
