Tower Seminar – Music and Dance Relations in Tango Argentino: A Choreomusical Study
March 20 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Presenters: Professor Kendra Steppatut
Co-chairs: Dr Aileen Dillane & Dr Orfhlaith Ní Bhriain
This presentation draws on Kendra Steppatut’s new book that investigates choreomusical aspects of tango argentino in translocal practice, in particular, its current manifestation in Europe. It looks at translocal tango argentino in its many facets: movement structures, sound structures, dancers and musicians, and the complex relations between all of these factors that all have their share in shaping the practice.
Professor Kendra Steppatut: Institute for Ethnomusicology at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz, Austria.
