Video (11:40): Union Tanguera’s “Nuit Blanche” (Sleepless Night) was created in 2010 by Co-Artistic Directors Esteban Moreno and Claudia Codega as a co-production with the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, France. This 90 minute, intermissionless work is performed by 7 dancers and 4 musicians. Both the dance and the music are classical and contemporary tango. “Nuit Blanche” toured throughout France and Italy in 2010 and 2011. Collaborators include Moreno and Codega with Jorge Crudo and Rolan Van Löor, contemporary choreographers with Cie. Modos Vivendi (Paris); scenic and lighting design by Gonzalo Cordova; with original music by Pedro Onetto. The band performs live on stage with the dancers and the stage design includes simple panels with scrims that divide the space. Video published in 2012.
