The choreographers Claudia Miazzo and Jean Paul Padovani continue to dust off Argentine dance: this time, they have created a breathless thriller where black no longer only clothes the dancers.
In this story with its deconstructed set, a metaphor for a fragile world, dancers and musicians encounter one another. We discover unique characters who are up to mysterious things... Each, in turn, becomes the guilty party for a process of transformation and constant reinvention.
But what crime has been committed?

After formal training, she began her professional career in Italy with classical dance companies such as Aterballetto.
Following a study scholarship with Carolyn Carlson and Alwin Nikolaïs, she moved to France and collaborated with numerous choreographers from very different worlds, such as Thomas Lebrun, Jan Fabre, Christiane Blaise, Jean Gaudin and Philippe Jamet, Frédéric Flamand and more.
She was a winner of the Sens–Synodales choreography contest in France for her choreography and performance of the duo Kodzokou, as well as receiving a special mention for her performance in the Vignale Danza choreography contest in Italy.
As well as training in release technique, contact dance and the analysis of dance movement, in 2005 she obtained a diploma as a dance teacher at the CND in Lyon.
Thanks to contact dance and choreography research, Argentine Tango became a thrilling addition to her evolution as a dancer.
After long periods in Buenos Aires, she founded the Company Tango Ostinato in Paris with Jean Paul Padovani.

After studying the lute and ancient and baroque music in Paris, he played in concerts between 1995 and 2000 in several professional ensembles and as a soloist. His research into performance and improvisation led him into the modern repertoire and recordings of Astor Piazzolla. Through music, he discovered dance.
He very quickly developed his personal research into movement in relation to his musical training and his experience practising martial arts and fencing.
He has participated in numerous shows and performances in France and abroad (Buenos Aires, Geneva, Venice) as a dancer and choreographer, and has made a name for himself by developing his own style of creative improvisation. He has evolved between tradition and modernity, linking the traditional TANGO MILONGUERO with the more contemporary TANGO NUEVO.
He has spent several periods in Buenos Aires, where he perfected his skills with Gustavo Naveira, Mariano 'Chicho' Frumboli, Pablo Véron, Julio Balmaceda and Corina de la Rosa, Pablo Villarraza and Dana Frigoli, Nancy Louzan and Damian Esell, and Christina Cortes.
He came to contemporary dance by training and perfecting his skills with Pierre Doussaint, Stephane Fratti and Bruno Sajous. This approach further enriched his corporal gesture in the Tango. He was asked by Thomas Lebrun to participate in the show What you want? at the Théâtre 140 in Brussels and the Théâtre Nelson Rodriguez in Rio de Janeiro, as well as several 'Bardas'. In May 2008 he founded the company TANGO OSTINATO with Claudia Miazzo.
