Union Tanguera: Nuit Blanche
Tuesday, November 26, 2013 – Pre-show 6pm, Concert 7pm
EPCOR CENTRE’s Jack Singer Concert Hall
Tango comes to Calgary direct from Argentina in this provocative dance creation complete with traditional original live music. Nuit Blanche by Union Tanguera captures the spirit of a dance club, where strangers meet on the dance floor, expressing powerful emotions through the tango dance.
Union Tanguera founding partners Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno are part of the generation that has elevated the tango from its relegation to the underground during the years of political discord in Argentina. They have assisted in its renaissance and increase in popularity. In Nuit Blanche they create a style which has transformed the tango for new generations of dancers while embracing the essential component of improvisation and traditional forms. This is a night of vibrant tango music and dance not to be missed.
Be sure to check out our Milonga Traditional Tango Social on Monday, November 25 with special guests Union Tanguera!
