A tango show, but real tango. A show full of tango and about tango, essential and sober, which unfolds in a space made up of gestures that are intimate, profound, true and anonymous. A show about the heritage these talented artists received from the great Masters when they were still alive... and which still reverberates as an essential part of their lives, as the only possible language: tango, austere and endless. A show born on the Rio de la Plata, the brown river, peaty and dense, which joins hands with Lyon, silken and wine red, to fill up our senses with energy, with music, with dance.

Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno are oneself of the best tango dancers in the world. They created a style that is a reference for the new generations, inspired by their heritage of traditionnal tango and its renewal. They have been an integral part in creating the conditions for its current popularity.
They started to dance tango in the 80’s in Buenos Aires, while they where students of the greatest tango maestros. Claudia and Esteban have inheritated the last popular dancers of “Salon Style” from the Villa Urquiza, neighborhood in Buenos Aires. They are now practicing and sharing their style with sincerity, enthusiasm and relevance.
Claudia and Esteban are performers, choreographers and teachers. They have been working together for 25 years. Simultaneously, Claudia is stylist for her brand Idilia and Esteban is musicalisator and producer. They formed the company Union Tanguera in 2002, imagined as a tool for the artistic creation.
Their dance is grave, intense and dynamic; a synthesis of styles reinterpreted, in which fantasy and imagination are joined, inside the logic of improvises tango. Since representing Argentina in the Universal Exposition of Seville in 1992, they have been invited to the most important tango festivals around the world.
With Union Tanguera they produced and created “Efecto Tango” (2005), “Tango Vivo” (2008) and “Nuit Blanche” (2010). All three productions where co-produced with Lyon’s Maison de la Danse and Tango de Soie.
