Matias first began dancing tango in Patagonia, Argentina, in 1995 and from that time has completely immersed himself in it. His passion for dancing and studying tango took him to Buenos Aires where he fully developed his own unique style.
Matias has been teaching tango for more than 15 years, and traveling around the globe teaching and performing has given him a wealth of tango experiences. His mind and body awareness have also been enriched through styles such as Graham, Limon, Cunningham, Flying Low and Feldenkrais.
In 2008 he moved to Berlin where he now lives. He teaches regularly with Claudia Rogowski, and travels to teach Tango around the world. In Buenos Aires, he is often invited to give seminars in schools like DNI and La Maleva, and as guest teacher at the practica of 'Las Malevas', and 'La Propuesta' of Carla Marano and Octavio Fernandez.
To his credit are a long list of festivals such as:
Misterio Tango Festival and Pulpo's Tango Week (Argentina), Tangomagia in Amsterdam, Siracusa Tango Festival in Italy, Vancouver Tango Festival 2010/2011, Lisbon Tango Festival,Chocotango Festival in Peruggi, De Nuevo Tango Festival in Trani, Meditanango Festival in Rome, Matrix Tango Festival in Hamburg, Moscow Tango Laboratory, Montevideo Tango Festival, Oldenburg Tango Festival, Greece Tango Festival 2011, Tango Festival Berlin, Festivalito Primavera in Zürich, Encuentro Tango in Villa Castelletti, Firenze, Nuevos Maestros in Istanbul.
Carla belongs to a generation of dancers that helped transform tango from a popular dance form with virtually no pedagogy, into a highly-sophisticated, deeply-understood art form. This was accomplished through many years of penetrating investigation into its movement technique, technical language and musical interpretation. Carla was an essential part of this investigative process, which has fueled the evolution of the dance, and its explosive popularity worldwide.
Over the years, Carla has devised her own didactic method based on her unique approach to the dance, a system which she has been able to share with colleagues from different generations and styles. She gave courses in different academic institutions, organizations and special events in Buenos Aires, such as La Viruta, CITA, and Festivals of the City Government of Buenos Aires, among others. Since 2013 she runs the popular investigation space ‘La Propuesta' with Octavio Fernandez in La Viruta and El Juvenil.
