To create Tango, Byrne playfully restructured several different performances and rehearsals of a single dance piece, which is itself a restructuring of themes based on the traditional tango. Byrne integrates the performance fragments with a spirited visual rhythm that reflects the seductive energy of the original dance. The body-based fluidity of Byrne's camera, which moves as though one of the dancers, typifies the physicality of his image making. The campy theatricality of the tango music is wittily mirrored in Linda Shapiro's artful choreography.
