Tango Vesre is a dance performance that expresses an evolution of male tango practice in Argentina through two duets, Parallel Tango by Alejandro Cervera and my own, Bound Tango.  Each work offers a unique perspective about male partnerships in tango during the Buenos Aires of 1910 and 2010. Although the work is framed within the Argentinean tango, the work puts into motion issues of power struggle, power negotiation, equality, marginalization, gender roles, sexual identity, acceptance, rejection and male dancing bodies.
