This portrait of professional tango dancers Lucas DiGiorgio and Juampy Ramírez challenges narrow conceptions of masculinity that are prevalent in tango iconography. Set to the classic tango “Mano a Mano” (Hand to Hand) as performed by Hugo Díaz, the piece transforms the meaning of the phrase “hand-to-hand” from hands hitting each other in combat to hands holding each other in tenderness, an embrace that hovers on the ambiguous edge of desire.
