COSTES TANGO

Feeling, Rhythm & Melody

Aiming to provide an interpretation of the affective meaning of the dance of tango, I follow the interpretation of Enrique Santos Discépolo and I intend to enhance it from the perspective of the phenomenology of life pursued by Michel Henry. Consequently, I understand that the dance of tango is affective in nature and, therefore, is not mimetic but expressive and liberating. So, I argue: that what’s expressed in any dance is not the organic body but the subjective body; that the source of the sense of rhythm is life; and that the kind of intersubjectivity involved in the dance of tango is non-intentional.
