For those coming a day early, Vincent Hodin will take you on an evening stroll and dance through Paris.
We will meet on Wednesday 3 July 2019 at 6 p.m. and set off at 6.30 p.m. on a tour of the city centre. We will make several stops for a couple of dances, giving you the chance to experience your first abrazos of the festival with old friends and new. We will finish at around 8.30 p.m. at the Jardin Tino Rossi, not far from Notre-Dame Cathedral, where a queer-friendly milonga is held by the river on summer nights. You can also join us there.

This year, Dita and Rasputina will be opening up a space for you to drag up before the Friday night milonga. They will give you tips on the make-up and clothes you need to transform into a drag queen. Rasputina will also immortalise the event in a short film.

“We noticed last year that some people were looking for an area to drag up at the festival venue. So let’s do it together this year – the more the merrier”.

Bring the following with you:

-Foundation (for your skin type)

– Eyeshadow

– Tweezers.

And if you want to be truly dazzling:

-A full outfit (dress, skirt, tango shoes, accessories)  

– Fake eyelashes

– Take care of any hair removal before (unless you are aiming for the Conchita Wurst look).

  • Start at 1.30 p.m.  :  City Walk Show LVR6 2019 

In keeping with what has become a tradition at La Vie en Rose, Olivier Varlet and Kevin Barron will take you on a walking tour of Paris so you can enjoy some abrazos in the magnificent setting of France’s capital. We will visit part of the city on a walk lasting for two-and-a-half hours, interspersed with breaks for dancing. It will be a subversive and militant time too as we will be showing the locals and tourists what queer tango is. All in all, it will be an unforgettable event, making you all the more eager to come back next year to meet new friends and old.

As always, the route will be carefully selected to include a stop for ice cream. And take appropriate footwear with you – the walk can be 2-3 km.

Meeting point and route coming soon on our website.
