Description

Combining the sensuality and intimacy of social dance with the formal expressivity of grand theater, UniĆ³n Tanguera's latest work features a cast of virtuoso tango dancers and musicians in a story set in a nightclub over the course of a single sleepless night, or nuit blanche. The French Argentinian ensemble is co-directed by Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno, who studied with the greatest tango maestros of the 1980s and 1990s, and who now represent a new generation of tango choreographers whose work "intelligently reinterprets the vocabulary of pure tango" (Danseur). The company visits on its first American tour, with an ensemble of first-call Buenos Aires musicians and a production "perfect in rhythm and spirit" (Ballet 2000).
