Por Amor de Tango


A Toronto tango dancer (Carolyn Dallman Downes) and her friends make a film about what tango improvisation means to them.

For some time, I had wanted to make a film about what Argentine tango means to me, and what I think it means to the ordinary person who dances just for the love of it. Tango is not the highly choreographed dance we usually see on screen and stage; for the average person, it's about improvisation--the act of being totally present with a partner in the creation of a dance.

That's not a bad creative group project... a little different than doing a show, and perhaps more personal. We could do something like that in our town.

Slide show here: Por Amor De Tango. I think a DVD can be purchased from the filmmaker at dallmandownes@sprint.ca.
