The work is loosely inspired by the Tango and the act of waiting, whether to dance or to catch a train...or waiting for the end.On one screen the scene resembles that of either a waiting room, or the waiting "wall" by the dance floor. When the viewer approaches the figures they are triggered into activity, what they do being a function of their relations with the other figures and with the viewers. In certain circumstances one figure will invite another figure to dance. They then appear on the other screen as a dancing couple. Depending on viewer interaction they dance various passages from the Tango, change direction and also change gender roles.
