A TANGO TRIP TO LISBON
JUST A FEW WORDS BEFORE YOU START
Lisbon is an edge of western world, place where city meets ocean – where civilization meets wild nature, place where all the adventures and discoveries started. Exactly this place we chose for new big adventure called Lisbon Tango Marathon. We are waiting for our explorers who are ready to invest their energy and joy, share their warmth and love to open new horizons.
Maybe we are waiting… for you?
YEARS AGO, BEING A DOCTOR, A WRITER, A MUSICIAN, I COULDN'T IMAGINE TO BECOME A TANGO MARATHON ORGANIZER. BUT IN 2009 I STARTED TANGO AND MY LIFE CHANGED MORE THAN COMPLETELELY.
SOMEHOW I'M STILL DEALING WITH HUMAN NATURE AS A RESEARCHER, I WORK WITH MUSIC AND WITH WORDS.. BUT MORE OR LESS EVERYTHING I DO, I DO... DANCING-WISE. I LOVE STORIES. TO WRITE, TO LISTEN AND TO CREATE. THAT'S WHY I'M DANCING. THAT'S WHY I'M DJING. THAT'S WHY I'M ORGANIZING.
CREATING REASONS FOR FRIENDS TO MEET, GIVING CHANCES FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW EACH OTHER, TO HUG, TO LAUGH AND TO LOVE, BRINGING LIFE TO EMPTY AND COLD PLACE TO MAKE MAGIC FROM NOTHING... THIS MAKES ME FEEL A TRUE AUTHOR. IN ALL POSSIBLE SENSES
MY NAME IS AUGUSTO GEMELLI BUT MOSTLY PEOPLE IN TANGO COMMUNITY KNOW ME AS AG TANGO.
MY PASSION FOR TANGO MUSIC AND DANCE STARTED MORE THAN 10 YEARS AGO WHEN I DECIDED TO TRY SOMETHING NEW IN MY LIFE. I CHOSE TANGO AND NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO REGRET ABOUT IT. REALIZE THAT I WAS ABLE TO DANCE MADE ME QUICKLY FALL IN LOVE FOR TANGO AND PUSH ME TO TRAVEL TO THE MAIN TANGO EVENTS IN EUROPE. DURING THE YEARS OF TRAVELING TO DANCE I MET MANY PEOPLE WHO ORGANIZE EVENTS, I BEGAN TO FEEL THE DESIRE, AND MAYBE EVEN A LITTLE NEED TO USE MY EXPERIENCE AS AN ORGANIZER OF EVENTS RELATED TO CATERING. I WANTED TO MAKE PARTIES WHERE I CAN BE DELIGHTED WITH THE MUSIC I LOVE, WHERE I CAN SEE THE FRIENDS WITH WHOM I LIKE TO DANCE AND SPOIL THEM WITH MY COOKING SKILLS. AFTER I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK IN MANY TANGO EVENTS AROUND EUROPE, THE TIME HAS COME TO INVITE FRIENDS I FOUND IN TANGO TO LISBON, TO THE CITY WHERE I SPENT THE LAST TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF MY LIFE.
THIS DREAM WAS BECOMING REALITY IN 2018 WHEN I FINALLY DID THE FIRST LISBON TANGO MARATHON WITH THE PRECIOUS SUPPORT OF SOME OF SOME OF MY BEST TANGO FRIENDS THAT JOINED ME IN THIS ADVENTURE BECAUSE WE WANT TOGETHER GIVE YOU A REALLY AMAZING TANGO EVENT THAT WILL MAKE YOU COME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR MANY YEARS TO LISBON.
FROM LISBON WITH LOVE, I ARRIVE TO THIS EVENT WITH THE PASSION THAT ONLY TANGO CAN BRING.
MILES AND MILES OF RONDAS AND INFINITE HUGS MAKE ME WANT TO BE PART OF THIS, THAT THE CITY WHERE I BORN AND WHERE I WORK FOR THE LOCAL DANCING COMMUNITY, BECOMES A BABEL TOWER OF TANGO.
FROM ASSEMBLING THE FLOOR TO DISMANTLING IT, FROM SQUEEZING ORANGES FOR BRUNCH TO DANCING HOURS AND HOURS, MOVING MY FAN, SMILING, WALKING AND WALKING A LOT TO SEE IF EVERYONE IS ENJOYING, - ALL THIS IS WHAT I LOVE AND SEE AS A PART OF MY DUTY IN LTM.
HELLO, I’M CATARINA MARTINS, I'M FROM LISBON AND I’M EXPERIENCING A GREAT PASSION FOR TANGO.
THE FIRST CLASS I DID WAS IN 2014, IT QUICKLY BECAME AN ADDICTION AND A WAY OF LIFE. AFTER 4 YEARS, LIKE MY CHILDREN, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND WORK, TANGO IS NOW ALSO PART OF MY LIFE AND I REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW I’VE LIVED WITHOUT IT FOR SO LONG :) <P>
TANGO ALLOWED ME TO MEET PEOPLE WITH WHOM I MADE TRUE FRIENDSHIPS THAT I WOULDN'T OTHERWISE HAVE MADE, AND KEEPS GIVING ME MOMENTS OF UNIQUE ALIGNMENT AND INTENSITY. WHEN I WAS CHALLENGED TO BE A PART OF ORGANIZING THIS EVENT, THE RESPONSE WAS IMMEDIATE "OF COURSE".
