This is the Third Movement of Negative Time.
Like ‘negative space’, negative time suggests that form is created by what is missed out. Each dance in this series misses out some usually included ingredient in the art of tango – that is the art of leading and following in time. The ingredients jettisoned are connection, contact, and thirdly development. Finally all the ingredients come together in a fourth dance to the jazz impressionism of Duke Ellington.
Tango Schumann (Lindi De Angelis and Anthony Howell) presented a performance of Negative Time at The Room, 33 Holcombe Road, London N17 9AS (Bruce Grove and Tottenham Hale Stations) On Saturday 22 February 2014
