Paris in Buenos Aires

The French Embassy (first photo) and the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Buenos Aires got together with the idea of culturally linking Paris to Buenos Aires and Buenos Aires to Paris. This is how they came up with Tandem Buenos Aires-Paris 2011. Up until June 26 we can enjoy French culture at it's best.

The program will mainly take place at the Theater and Cultural Center General San Martin, but also in other government- run venues.

The offer of activities is very broad, going from scenic Arts: theater, circus, puppets, dance; visual arts: video art, photography, street art, movies; music: classical, jazz and rock 'n roll (very funny how the French dance to it!) and literature. Several prestigious French theater directors are participating as well as the Theatre du Rond Point which is excellent.

In the fall, Argentina artists will be arriving to Paris to unfold our culture there.

Kurt Vonnegut once said "I wanted all things to seem to make some sense,
So we could all be happy, yes, instead of tense. And I made up lies, so
they all fit nice, and I made this sad world a paradise"

Doesn't that quote make you smile? it comes from Literature. We feel that art, in any of its forms, is intended to make your life better, that is why we hope you can experience at least, a bit of Tandem 2011.
