The company of seven Argentinian dancers based in Lyon, France, performs its newest work. Nuit Blanche, or “sleepless night,” is set in a nightclub as the dancers’ milonga (tango party) comes to an end. The 60-minute show, presented by White Bird, doesn’t have Dancing With the Stars flair, but you don’t really watch that anymore, do you? What it does have is a range of emotion—desire, loneliness, passion—expressed through movement. In addition to their efforts to bring tango to the stage, co-artistic directors Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno are also credited with helping tango reemerge as a social dance. This performance is accentuated with slight contemporary twists and bolstered by original compositions by Pedro Onetto, who performs onstage, with a live quartet of Buenos Aires musicians playing bandoneon, violin, piano and double bass.
