Tango Experiential Festival
13 - 17. 8. 2019. Fužine, Croatia
The theme of TEF 2019 festival - NeoTango Warrior
NeoTango Warrior walks in an unpredictable way, fearlessly goes out of balance and returns to equilibrium. He looks for perfection and art within his totality, always searching for the unknown outside and within at the same time. The feeling of the last dance pushing him forward in the next step. He is silent, filled with gratitude, love and responsibility. He gives himself freedom for a spontaneous and unpredictable next step because creativity is in his nature. He leads and follows simultaneously while breathing, creating new steps with awareness in the neo-music rhythm. Being inside and outside the life-dance in each moment keeps him awake. He creates the present moment while caring for the future. Not separated from the past, he brings all of his past experiences into the present moment. To stay in the state of pure love as long as the neo-music plays is his goal. We cannot say that he exists, only that his inspiration flows through us!
About the Tango Experiential Festival
Tango Experiential festival is a unique tango festival which brings art, tango and self-development together. At the festival, we play neo/contemporary music which triggers and opens new possibilities regarding body movement and dance elements. Apart from numerous tango workshops, dance evenings and tango concerts in the open you can find various workshops dedicated to self-development, health, and nature such as massage, yoga, trips to nature, djembe and didgeridoo jamming, dream-catchers, natural cosmetics, blues dance…
In between the numerous workshops, you'll be given a chance to mingle even more as most of the festival participants have common accommodation at Fužinarska house.
Each year has its own story and theme (The Six-Senses in 2017 , Five Elements in 2018) which determines the activities and dance hall decorations. How it really is can be understood only through the Experience:). Come and join us this year and become the NeoTango Warrior!

I was so satisfied by your very very special and wonderful Tango festival. It was like really experimental, somehow familiar and at the same time high quality level of teaching, Milongas and concept of connecting Tango with other methods and approaches. It was like expanding Tango much wider than it is taught normally...
