There's something about Pugliese

Then we started on the second song, and he wasn’t trying so hard with his head; he let his heart contribute; he paid attention to my movements and how my body responded to the music. By the third song, he had begun to get the hang of it, started experimenting with sustained and long, connected motions through the adagios, sharp and fast motions that reflected the dramatic passages.
By the end of the tanda, a Pugliese dancer had been born, and he was glowing.

Introducing Pugliese, Tangri-Lá

會心微笑。也曾跟年資較短的朋友跳Pugliese。一開始的時候那張緊張的臉孔提醒我要給他一個溫暖的擁抱。
起初也很怕跳Pugliese。
Pugliese的音樂就好像一個人的歷史。
他時而激烈。時而低沉。時而舒暢。時而迂迴。
好像沒有固定的節拍可以掌握。
後來,有人會導你昇仙:會有人跟你這樣跳Pugliese,超越拍子,不是沒有拍子,而是跳那個旋律,整體的氣氛和感覺。
在大家有限的表達能力內,投入在音樂裡面,讓身體在音樂裡面自由。
我身體記住了這種自由。
當我跟怯於Pugliese的朋友跳舞時,我會把那種感覺告訴他。以我身體的告訴他。
他會很快很快把他感受到的Pugliese告訴你。
然後那份驚喜無法形容。

這是其中一首我很喜歡的Pugliese。如果你先聽了,再看他們動人的演繹,你會更加明白到他們是怎樣聆聽及表達音樂。喜歡這樣子的探戈,不會過份隆重、隨意而整齊恰當的打扮。沒有為了悅目增加新鮮感而加插的新原素。只有每一刻都是那麼光明磊落的身段。還有那可一不可再的濃得化不開的情感。
