Palavras-chave:Tango tradicional, Velhos milongueiros, Intencionalidade, Gestualidade, Movimento espontâneo, Eixo e abraço
The study of body gestures and the participatory construction of the movements of the ‘old’ argentine milongueros is hampered by the fact that their protagonists are no longer alive. This work investigates both themes in an indirect way, conducting a semi-directed interview with the relevant teacher and dancer Graciela González, who since the 80's had as master and was dance partner of Norberto 'Pupi' Castello, one of the myths of the milonga 'porteña'. González describes some of the lesser known gestural and intentional characteristics of these ‘old’ milongueros, and explains how some of these characteristics have been softened as a result of generational changes and the speed of communications brought about by social media.
