Tomorrow, Sunday 10/23, 9:30 pm EST, I welcome you to the Takarazuka Flashback Project’s next stream of converted VHS vintage takarazuka, Tango Argentina (Hanagumi 2000) and the revue Prestige (Tsukigumi, 1996). I'll try to open the stream a half hour early with some music or clips from other revues.
Contrary to what I originally believed, it does not feature tango in Argentina. No, it features an Argentinian immigrant (I think) dancing tango in Paris. Because he’s an artist, and all artists must live in Paris, obviously! Also it features characters angstily dancing their feelings about World War I and a happy ending.
Prestige starts out as a dignified revue, and then degenerates into delicious crack. I heavily endorse it.
There will also be a morning stream on Monday 10/24 at 10:30 am EST.
Everyone welcome! (Even if you don't know me or anything about Takarazuka.)
