Location: Centennial Hall – 1020 E. University Blvd., Tucson

Description: Grave, intense, dynamic. Founded in 2002, this French-Argentinean ensemble is based in Lyon, France and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Co-Artistic Directors Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno utilize the music and dance of traditional tango and incorporate elements of contemporary dance creating new frontiers and reimagining the possibility of tango. Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night), their newest work, illuminates the wanderings, desire, instincts and fears that unfold in one sleepless night—the delirious late-night world at the very end of the milonga where the dancers express themselves through the intimate, sensuous dance that is tango.

With a quartet of Buenos Aires’ finest musicians and seven wondrous dancers, Nuit Blanche “intelligently reinterprets the vocabulary of pure tango.” -Danseur

Event Sponsors: John E. Wahl & Mary Lou Forier
