Theatrical elements in Tango

Yesterday, towards the end, I had a very interesting class with Cappussi and Flores about theatrical elements for expression development. Cappussi and Flores are known to have an exaggerated style. Basically what we were taught and told was that now that we have a structure and format, how to go beyond it and develop our own style and incorporate our own elements in it. It just took the whole thing that we have learnt so far to a different level. All the rules that we have learnt so far were broken. We were working in the given format, yet adding our own expression to it. It was funny class. Lots of theatrical elements were put in it and it helped me widen my horizons so much more.
