Tango Intervention, Vienna Location
1 - We start our tango intervention here at Theodor Herzl Platz, where we dance near some of the very few physical remnants of the ancient city fortifications. And… on the subject of Passage and Barrier, it may be of passing interest to know that Theodor Herzl was the founder of Zionism.
2 - We are now dancing at the Vienna Opera House, the first public building constructed after the destruction of the city walls. Though there is debate as to whether this was actually a public building or rather a playground for the aristocracy. We are dancing not in the front but near the stage entrance, which has admitted artists from around the world for centuries.
