Liebesleben verzweifelt gesucht

Nicola Brown überlässt nichts dem Zufall: Ob Mittagessen oder Freizeit – alles ist nach festen Plänen organisiert, nichts und vor allem niemand bringt in ihrem Leben irgendetwas durcheinander. Das beruhigt Nicola, gibt ihr Sicherheit – macht sie aber auch ziemlich einsam. Ihre Kollegin kann das nicht mehr mitansehen und nimmt ihr ein Versprechen…

Thompson traces tango’s evolution in the nineteenth century under European, Andalusian-Gaucho, and African influences through its representations by Hollywood and dramatizations in dance halls throughout the world. He shows us tango not only as brilliant choreography but also as text, music, art, and philosophy of life. Passionately argued and unparalleled in its research, its synthesis, and its depth of understanding, Tango: The Art History of Love is a monumental achievement.
