Argentine tango is an intimate, interactive, improvisational, and immediate. At a milonga I had each tanguero and tanguera write a message on the palm of their partner before beginning to dance. The hot Houston night and the intense, intimate dance of tango dissolved our messages into the palms of one another. Photos of the unread messages were shared only later, inserting language that described a connection into the memory of a sensed experience.
