Les univers sémiotiques de la danse : Formes et parcours du sens dans le tango argentin

Abstract : To what extent does dancing gesture make sense ? If considered as inseparable from the wholepractice of dance, at which level should the analysis be placed? How could semiotics make asignificant contribution to dance studies ? This work aims to answer to these questionsfocussing on the Argentinian tango. It is approached as a complex object of analysis, a "wholeof sense", that is both as bodily interaction and practice, and as a fundamental driver inidentity and imaginary building processes. To this end, we examine and test some theoreticaland methodological models in current semiotics. The peculiar aspects of tango require a pointof view able to keep together a semiogenetic approach and a syntagmatic one. Therefore, wepropose a model which strengthens different levels of deployment and development of tango.Finally, we show how this framework could provide an original perspective about some issueson patrimonialization and improvisation, as a crucial topic in the current debate on tango.
