To mark a special occasion – the current special exhibition "From Mosesville to Buenos Aires" – the Glass Courtyard designed by Daniel Libeskind will be transformed into a tango hall for the evening. The Berlin quartet Vibratanghissimo is guest for the evening. Typical for tango nuevo, the group combines various musical styles: soulful tango variations on the viola, enthralling jazz improvisations on the vibraphone, and astonishing double bass solos to music by Astor Piazzolla, Horacio Salgán und Oli Bott.
A highlight of the evening is the performance by the Argentinian tango couple Germán Cassano and Liliana Espinosa. Under their professional direction, beginners can take their first steps while experts polish their technique and dance their way through the night under the glass heaven to the sounds of DJ Andreas von Maxen.
A cooperation with the "Organisationskomitee für die Teilnahme Argentiniens an der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2010" (Committee for Argentina's appearance at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Argentinian Foreign Office) and the Embassy of the Republic of Argentina.
