"The last Tango"

Tango, Klezmer and literature

featuring Tangotopia and Barbara Stoll - recitation

approx. 90 min.

Barbara Stoll, narrator and actress, recites texts about the failure of love, the depths of the underworld, in "tears of rum drowned wounds" and other pieces, the abysmal depths that humanity can fall to are revealed by the devilment of tango. Tangotopia contrasts texts by Franz Kafka, Danil Charms, Jorge Borges, Federico Garcia Lorca, with tango and klezmer music. The texts are mirrored by the music, in a final intoxicating fling with tango.
