BUENOS AIRES 72

BUENOS AIRES 72 A TRUE STORY

«The 1970s in Argentina, so rich in creation and experimentation, these famous seventies, years of childhood for Marina, are also those of a leaden cloak, a cruel and ignorant dictatorship, pointing at his youth, eager for free love, Curious about sensations and rebellious music. This is what nourishes their music made of current and future sonorities ».

SPECTACLE MUSIc THeaTEr DANcE

Un public complice, qui fait partie de l’œuvre, qui prend en lui corps et voix aux pulsions créatrices d’émotions, et nous transporte dans un Buenos Aires de 1972. Ce tango, c’est un bandonéon du jazz, il évoque des tricots de ces temps tourmentés aux rayures multicolores, des psychanalystes à tous les étages et des militaires prêts à dégainer. Buenos Aires, ma ville, théâtre des scandales, de la dictature, de la censure, de la révolte, de la persécution. Au même moment, Paris, terre d’exils désirés, lumineuse et porteuse des rêves inassouvis. Quand j’ai commencé à écrire mes premières chansons, j’ai eu l’envie spontanée d’inviter des voix masculines qui pourraient me donner un écho de mes ressentis face à mes expériences: « una ida y vuelta », un aller et retour. Je n’avais jamais imaginé que mon pays soit aussi vaste, que mes sentiments liés à la nostalgie, à la solitude, à la révolte, aient sculpté ma façon de penser, de percevoir le monde. Je suis fille de la dictature. Peut-être n’aurais-je pas dû partir ? Rester aurait été le début d’une autre désobéissance. Je suis partie, et je suis là parmi vous. Buenos Aires 72, porte la nature urgente d’exprimer avec ma voix toutes les images sonores qui m’ont traversées. Ce sont des moments de vie, des impressions qui me poursuivent et m’habitent aujourd’hui, et que j’aimerais colporter.

Tango 1972 concerns us all, the conscience and the experience of the censorship, the prohibitionism, the war, the uprising, the scandal, the explosion of freedom.

Tango is so rich that allows me to express solitude, exile, passion, life, death, love… It allows me to  reveal my feelings naked.

I talk about it using all my senses through words – recitative, poetry, dialogs – gestures, dance and music.

It’s not a classic concert : for this work I have introduced some acting and some interaction with the public. The result is an increased amount of risk : I never know how the public will react.

It’s the account of my life. My complicity with tango is tightly connected to the history of my country, that Argentina from the 70s to the present days.

I live through dancing. My universe identifies to german romanticism and expressionism. I feel a proximity, an intellectual, poetical and musical bond with the culture of this country. There is something that attracts me, a life urge, an different eye that I can’t explain with words...

The bandonéon, the soul of tango, comes from Germany.    Marina Cedro

Bandonéon tango 1972THE bandonéon

This instrument was invented in Germany in 1846, for religious purpose, church music. The reason why it was invented was to create a substitute for the more expensive organ. At the beginning it was called bandonium. It was also very common to hear its sound on ships, played by the sailors. This is how it came to Argentina. At first it was played in brothels. But the italian accordéon players soon enough started to use it for tango because of its sad, velvet sound. Accordéon has a playful sound and bandonéon has really nothing joyful within.
