Milonga du Miroir aux oiseaux (Mirror Dances / Danses au Miroir)
Martigues - Street dance - June 25 to August 27, Thursdays from 8 p.m. to midnight - Free
Tangeras y tangeros, your ball tango evenings are coming back this summer!
It is the 12th edition in 2020 and now it is Thursday.
Martigues organizes its milonga around the terraces, bar and restaurants in a magical place which adjoins the bird mirror: the Place de la Liberation, on a resin track ideal for dancers.
The milonga is the dance at the origin of the tango rioplatense (mouth of the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires and Montevideo) but it is also the name of the place in which the tango ball takes place.
The tango called Argentinian as opposed to the tango of salon or musette is a ballroom dance, improvisation for two, based on walking and listening to music.
The dancers on the track move and rotate smoothly and homogeneously in the direction of the ball so that there is a collective energy in which all participate.
Many spectators come to watch the dancers for the pleasure of the eyes and listen to this century-old music which continues to make the world dance today.

Epiphany in Provence is like nowhere else!
'Herbes de Provence', the perfume of our sun-baked hills...
A story that will make you turn to jelly...
As yellow as sunshine and as warm as a winter fireplace... The quince isn't very pretty, but the people of Provence love it. You could even say that a passion has been born between this irregular-shaped fruit, somewhat resembling a dented, rustic pear and our lovers of jams, jellies and pastes.
In a sauce or salad, red is the colour!
