After attending a 6 month Tango course, the prisoners of the Brindisi prison are the protagonists of the video art dance INTANGOUT inspired by the origins of Tango, when they danced among lonely men, highlighting the similarities that unite the Tango to the condition of life of a prisoner, to his life in prison, in the male section, projected "sentimentally" out of necessity dances with another man. Hybrid dance of hybrid people, the tango feeds on friction and victimism.
INTANGOUT will not tell any story but will speak of feeling, of distance, of the absence of the person you love. When the body is not in connection with the mind because it travels perpetually between the memories of the loved person and the memory arouses antithetical feelings: pain and joy, freedom and possession, carnality and depth, sweetness and anger, passion and revenge. The songs of Tango celebrate the shadow of the unsaid, the melancholy of lost and distant things, feeds on sadness, loneliness, loss not only of love but also of friendship, of abandonment not only of the beloved person but also of the country of origin, of the traditions, of the house, the same condition in which a prisoner finds himself living in a place of privation and far from his affections.
