Details: This is a 10-hour introductory course spanning five weeks and will cover the fundamentals of the dance form, allowing the student to grasp basic poise, lead-follow technique, Tango walk and social dance etiquette as it pertains to this dance. This will also build a proper foundation for more advanced concepts as the student gain experience and practices more in a Practica setting, and eventually to a proper Milonga.

What is Argentine Tango?

Tango Argentino is a dance which initially developed in southern America but which is danced today all over the world. In its essence it is a danced frame of communication and relationship.  From an individual autonomous point of departure the dancing partners meet each other in a sympathetic relatedness. Reciprocal presence, clarity, and intention are balanced in greatest possible mindfulness and empathy. It is an open frame which allows improvisation in every step.

Acknowledging the depth of the dance, the UNESCO inscribed Tango Argentino in 2009 on the representative list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

This is a 10-hour introductory course spanning five weeks and will cover the fundamentals of the dance form, allowing the student to grasp basic poise, communication technique, Tango walk and social dance etiquette as it pertains to this dance. This will also build a proper foundation for more advanced concepts as the student gain experience.

Thomas Falk

About the Instructor:

Thomas Falk

Thomas first started to dance Tango Argentino around 15 years ago and practiced it intensively in courses and milongas over the last four years. His main teachers were Rotraut and Ricardo el Holandes . Thomas loves Tango for its freedom to interpret the music, the delicate way of communication, its introverted meditative potential.Thomas Falk Milonga

Tango allowed him to have the most profound conversations with people from all around the world.

 

 

In his own words:  “Participants of the course will learn the basic principles of the dance. The focus will be on the philosophy and technique of Tango rather than figures.  We will exercise the particular way of standing, walking, leading and following.  This will enable the participants to dance in sensitive connection and is the fundamental basis for anything to be learned in future.”

Artist Bio in Detail :

Originally from India, Mr. Muthyala began his dance training in India at a very young age. He studied dance and drama from several noted teachers back in India and around the world. Known for his classic edge choreographies and ground breaking working in the field of dance, he is considered as one among the leading Experimental choreographers in the world of dance today. Graduating in dance and theater from Peridance School for contemporary and ballet in New York, he went on to work and study with noted artists such as as Anabella Lenzu, Eric John Campros, Padma Shri Ananda Shankar Jayant to name a few.

Trained in Contemporary, Yoga, Classical Jazz , Classical Ballet, Modern Dance, Theater, African and Indian Folkloric forms, he often exhibits a keen interest in understanding the evolution of Indian classical dance from Natya Shastra . He has also been training himself in the Sufi forms of expression including Whirling Dervishes under Semazen Bashi Shekha Khadija from Turkey.

A Master’s in Computer Science graduate , he is also the director and Producer of an Upcoming Web Series titled “The Great Dance Diaries “ which features leading artists and choreographers from all around the world such as Astad Deboo, Desmond Richardson, Mr. Wiggles, Lori Belilove etc . He also leads a community outreach program for the under-privileged dancers and artists across many cities in India.

He has performed and presented his work in venues like Michael Schimmel Center of Arts for Indo-American Arts Council’s Erasing Borders Festival, Ailey City Group theater, Symphony Space etc. As he aspires to pioneer dance films in India, his Dance films have been premiered in Avayava Dance festival, Greensboro dance festival of North Carolina, Tufts University, Tech Fest – Innovation in technology and Film, Transmit International Dance Film Festival etc.

Often Juggling his time between New York and India he works as a screen writer, choreographer, producer and director. His Individual research interests in dance include:
1) Existential States in Performance Studies
2) Eastern classical and Western classical Dance Forms – A comparative Study
3) Role of Performing arts in addressing Social Issues.
4) Research Papers on Focal Point Transitions
5) Rasa theory between performer and Audience.

About his world premiere of Padam:
Veteran Greek artist Loannis Mavrikakis says :
The heroic confession of director / Choreographer Shreenath Muthyala to bridge-reveal and embody through the nonverbal language of Dance, the damage of dialog in the global body of cultures in a Renaissance new proposal.

Renowned Professor for Dance and Critic Uttara Asha Coorlawala about “ Padam “: Shreenath Muthyala’s Padam has the emotional resonances of passionate unrequited longing – desire is more sublimated than mere sexuality. The incorporation of abhinaya here and is cautious about being intrusive or outside the postmodern aesthetic. This is extremely difficult to do. What I like about Muthyala’s version is that it works across balletic, modern and sadir conventions .

Critic Aseem Chhabra about Shreenath Muthyala’s work : Shreenath Muthyala’s choreography creates a beautiful universal form.

Scholar Sujatha Maringanti says in her article for Narthaki about his workshops: Effortless engagement with eternity, Shreenath Muthyala’s gradual progression into a zen master who weaves his magic spell on the youngsters and carefully elicits the “performers” out of them is a beautiful curve in learning and is filled with extreme dedication and intense hard work. What is impressive about Shreenath’s work is his ability to make that connection come alive, even if for a short period of time, tuning and training the students to step into an “alternative reality”.

Often invited to teach as guest faculty for an Indian classical company headed by Padma Shri Anand Shankar Jayant and “The Floor” based in Cochin he also worked as creative head of Mirage Dance Drama Theater for five years which has been an integral part of Ram’s Step Up Dance Company in Hyderabad. Occasionally his articles and reviews have been published in NY Arts Magazine, Narthaki etc
