Contemporary Tango Festival 2020 ∙ Trailer

Do you remember? We had dreams, we had plans. We had joy, we worked a lot to make it possible. Like so many other freelancers we lost what we loved. Lost it totally. -
Yes, we have great memories. We have the experience to start something unusual from zero. We learned that it takes time and patience but that it is worth to try.
Creatitivy will allways be our food, our water, our air.
Future starts ever minute.
'Oblivion' is a deep word. It is an experience; it is worth to dance it again and again. However, wherever. Take care. Listen to untold stories of ..... oblivion.....
Please don't stop to dance. :=)
We will not forget you all who created this festival with us. Thank you for all these 11 years. There will be new options, new spaces, new joy, new connections.
life is beautiful.

Das Contemporary Tango Festival braucht Eure Hilfe organized by Andreas Rochholl

In 3 Tagen wäre die geplante Eröffnung vom CTF 2020 gewesen. Bereits im April wurde uns dieses Festival abgesagt, damals hofften wir alle noch, dass bis zum Sommer sich die Dinge wieder normalisieren, jetzt weiß niemand mehr, wie die Zukunft aussieht. Die gesamte CTF-Grundausstattung, Bühne und Technik liegt in einem gemieteten Container, der Auszug aus dem Tangoloft hat uns schmerzlich unsere Endlichkeit vor Augen gehalten, Freundschaft und Solidarität haben diesen Prozess aber menschlicher gemacht. Viele von Euch haben schon großzügig und immer wieder gespendet, wenn Euch schöne Erinnerungen an das CTF in diesen Tagen in den Sinn kommen, würden wir uns freuen, wenn ihr uns ein wenig unterstützten könntet um zumindest die bereits entstandenen Kosten diesen Jahres doch irgendwie stemmen zu können.

Rinascero!
Do we understand what happened?
There are many truths, facts, theories and above all, a lot of loss. The change challenges everyone to come to their senses and to find something that gives orientation. The CTF team wishes you new attentive scope for all your talents, wishes and needs in your everyday life. The tango is nourished by our longing and the motor that seeks and dares to move within it. A move towards each other. New. From the old roots. Rinascero!

Das Contemporary Tango Festival braucht Eure Hilfe organized by Andreas Rochholl

Das Contemporary Tango Festival war für den August 2020 geplant, viele der Künstler und Crewmitglieder waren schon gebucht (wie z.B. das Quinteto Angel für die mittlerweile legendäre '6 hours live music Milonga') und hatten mit den Vorbereitungen auch schon begonnen. Die Gesamtplanung eines Festivals in dieser Größenordnung beginnt für uns im Team immer ca. 10 Monate vor dem Festivalbeginn.

Da alle Mitarbeiter und engagierten Künstler des Festival hauptberuflich arbeiten, ist der Ausfall des Festival für diese Beteiligten u.a. auch ein wirtschaftlicher Verlust. Wir wollen diese Mitarbeiter und Künstler deshalb jetzt nicht vergessen und zumindest ein geringes Ausfallhonorar anbieten, um ihnen unsere Unterstützung fühlbar zu machen und sie zu motivieren, trotz dieser schweren Zeit und ungewissen Zukunft als professionelle Kollegen, durchzuhalten.

Bisher waren die Festivals im Berliner HBF für alle Teilnehmer komplett kostenlos gewesen, deshalb fragen wir euch jetzt zum ersten Mal, ob ihr diese Mitarbeiter und Künstler in diesem Jahr einmal finanziell unterstützen würdet.

Eure Mona Isabelle und Andreas

CTF 2020 was cancelled by Deutsche Bahn.
Why?
The decision to cancel the festival does not come about because of over-caution or because of the fear that a public event like this may still be prohibited in August, but because of the already clearly apparent financial imbalance of the individual traders in the train stations. Their percentage contribution to the "advertising community of the train stations" was the previous basis of the financing by DB Station & Service. DB is a complex group. Many understand this - understandably - a little too simply. The CTF is not financed by the DB Group, which would hardly be possible from a budgetary point of view, but in a rather complex nesting of parts of the DB. Building up took us years of familiarization and internal communication. The refusal now is simply based on the interdependencies of the current major crisis and the decisions of those responsible within the responsible departments at DB Station & Service. There will probably be many more of this kind of interaction in our living worlds, the effects of which we will all later become aware of.

The festival is tied to this place with all its identity, dramaturgy and biography. We therefore have no intention of "outsourcing" the CTF to another location in 2020.

Our partners at DB have been all the years reliable and good partners for us. This decision was probably hard to them too. We all only can hope the future will bring new options for this event and so many other similar. We are not alone in this.

Das CTF wird nächste Woche beim 'Urban Offline Forum 2019" in Dortmund als Beispiel einer positiven Innenstadtbelebung vorgestellt. Wir hoffen, dass wir auch andere Akteure in den Städten anregen können, den öffentlichen Raum als Bühne zu verstehen und ihn mit eigenen Ideen bürgernah zu beleben.

Mit dem Contemporary Tango Festival im Berliner Hauptbahnhof hat Andreas Rochholl ein Element zur Bespielung des öffentlichen Raumes geschaffen

Herr über den Hauptbahnhof

Time to say "THANK YOU!"
Thomas Hesse was for over 10 years the manager of Berlin Hauptbahnhof. He gave us the chance to realize the festival there and we love to remember his opening speeches. He never had to read a text that someone was writing for him before: he was talking from his heart. He was a great partner and supporter. Without him our festival would not happend again and again.
Thank you dear Thomas Hesse!
In this text here, he mentioned our festival, that he realy liked it so much!!

Er schüttelten Promis wie Reinigungspersonal gleichermaßen die Hände: Thomas Hesse, Manager des Berliner Hauptbahnhof nimmt nach zwölf Jahren seinen Hut.

Know Your Sphenoid! August 16, 2010 at 10:53am The most beautiful bone in our body...in our skull actually. Resembles a butterfly or bat...referred to as the batbone. Believed to be the center of our balance, creativity, spirit, health...just about everything :) Some specialists actually try to adjust it for health and well being...some of these processes can be painful. But honestly I believe we can balance our sphenoid through easier methods. I had a dream around 1984 that my head opened up and this bone-like butterfly flew out of my head... I did a quick sketch upon arising from my dream! I then went to Gray's anatomy to see the skull so that I could paint this image...I was very surprised to find that there was actually a bone in our head that looked very much like my dream........ so there...know yours
Mona Isabelle ist studierte Modedesignerin. Sie gab ihren ursprünglichen Job auf und pfeift darauf, etwas ausschließlich Solides zu tun, um das zu machen, was sie will und was sie tief berührt. Heute hat sie mit dem Tangoloft Berlin eine Tangoinstitution und veranstaltet das Contemporary Tango Festival. Durch Mona kommt der Tango in die Komische Oper, das Badeschiff, den Kit Kat Club oder das ehemalige Frauengefängnis in Lichterfelde. Dazu verschönert sie die Stadt mit blühenden Kunstwerken. Als Tänzerin und Künstlerin will Mona Menschen glücklich machen und gemeinsam mit dem STREET COLLEGE dazu beitragen, dass junge Erwachsene das lernen können, was sie wollen, wie sie wollen und einfach sie selbst sein können. Unterstütze das STREET COLLEGE und spende unter https://streetcollege.de/ Das STREET COLLEGE wird gefördert durch Gangway e.V. Straßensozialarbeit Berlin und der #SKala Initiative von Phineo
