Psychoanalytic Approach to Tango
- Por Lic. Mónica Peri
As a psychoanalytic tool, we can liken the tango to
a game. As a game, the dance
of tango allows us to put ourselves in touch with our unconscious:
speak, and bodies that are heard.
Incarnate bodies, in which life manifests. The dance of
tango, is a meeting with
one itself, that allows us to stand up, to support our proper
balance, our axis, to be
able to meet one another.
We see tango as a phenomenon, much more profound than a
simple diversion in
which we move the body... we speak of an activity that helps
us to minimize the
loss of that first basic relation with our mother and/or
the conscious or unconscious
losses of our romantic dreams, our illusions of freedom,
of power, and of safety.
Our losses, as they are universal, make tango a universal
instrument that facilitates a
way of overcoming loss. We believe that all of our experiences
of loss return us to the
original loss - that primary loss in the relationship between
mother and child.
