Juan Carlos Copes and Maria Nieves Rego - their tango story

Image
'Our Last Tango' is about to be released nationally, but Sydneysiders can get in early at the Casula Powerhouse Film Festival. On Friday March 4 they will show the documentary about two tango dancers who have had a huge impact on the dance and it's international standing.
The film's promotion reads: "María Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83) met as teenagers, and danced together for nearly fifty years. Now, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. Our Last Tango bridges the gap between generations, as Juan and Maria tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies."

Tango Translations

Image
I have just discovered a new blog... TangoTranslations.  https://embrujamiento.wordpress.com
The words of tango songs are for many of us for whom Spanish is not our native language, a mystery. If you are not fluent it is the singer's voice, not the words, that you remember. This is a blog with a difference, it is actually telling you something about the songs and the orchestras, as well as giving a translation.
Read the post on Pugliese to find out more about this photo...they all look very happy about something!
