Free leg of the manga man,
a social Argentine tango dancer who's looking for his spiral structure
With my magic feet, I'm a tango follower. Indeed, I hear the music - Argentine tangos and milongas, South American roots songs, or classical music - and follow her, like she's an entity with her sound body, a body of vibrations.
She said: "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood, lives in me, and I in him."
I'm not a leadership dancer, just an argentine tango medium. The music takes me, she takes my heart, her flesh is my flesh, my blood bubbles as one thousand volcanoes. She doesn't stop, music lives somewhere again in my cells, in the features of my face, in the folds of my soul.
In my narrow ballroom, I disappear when she's going home. My tango body is her house, my heart becomes a precious tabernacle: I have trance-like state. So I'm a dream, she's my draftswoman.
In my dancing shoes, a character takes the form of a blooming garden. Lost in this small square which is my dance floor, I'm as a cartoon. My name is manga man, a poor lonesome... tango dancer.
There's neither male nor female, no leadership, no follower. As the curve of DNA strand, I wrap myself around the music. And if she leaves me, abandons me, I'll be able to surrender to birdsongs, to melody of winds, to symphony of stars.
By a social tango dancer, for connecting, to follow, and share in the dance's love!
(Soft for the heart, tonic for the legs, the tango is a pairs free dance with an embrace that is the subject of many workshops all over the world, and wonderful ballroom dancing in the South American and Argentine roots)

"A man who, as Voltaire wished, cultivates his garden. He who is grateful that music exists on earth. He who discovers an etymology with pleasure. A pair in a Southern café, enjoying a silent game of chess. The potter meditating on colour and form. The typographer who set this, though perharps not pleased. A man and a woman reading the last triplets of a certain canto. He who is stroking a sleeping creature. He who justifies, or seeks to, a wrong done him. He who is grateful for Stevenson's existence. He who prefers the others to be right. These people, without knowing, are saving the world." Jorge Luis Borges, The Just
Tigre Viejo, Osvaldo Fresedo
