Tom Noga wrote on in the german daily paper: „El Sonido de mi Tierra is a revue of dance and music. A declaration of love to Argentine, her people and landscapes.”

About Nicole Nau After studying graphic design Nau first worked for advertising agencies before she settled in Argentina to be formally instructed as a professional dancer. In 1990 she had her first appearance in Café Homero[ to be followed by an engagement as a dancer in the opera Maraton Teatro Colon opera house in Buenos Aires. From 1989 to 2001 Nicole Nau danced with her first dance partner under the pseudonym Ricardo & Nicole.

In 2002 she had her premiere with the tango opera Orestes - Last Tango, which was created in a co-production with her former partner and WMTF Festival of Holland. It was here that she danced with Luis Pereyra for the first time who is her life companion and dance partner now.

In co-operation with Luis Pereyra she produced El Sonido de mi Tierra, Bailando en Soledad, Secretos de la Danza and El Color de mi Baile. Since 2007 they are the artistic directors of the renowned tango theater Café de los Angelitos in Buenos Aires

She went on tours through Argentine, Chile, Bolivia, Germany, Japan, Russia, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland as well as to Great Britain and Canada.

 About Luis Pereyra was born to a humble working class family. At the early age of five he danced in folk groups. At the age of eleven he made his first professional appearance as a member of the ballet Argentino directed by Mario Machaco and Norma RĂ©. He made his first appearance on stage at the legendary Caño 14, where the famous bandoneonist AnĂ­bal Troilo appeared at the same time. Later Luis Pereyra became member of the Ballett Salta, directed by Marina and Hugo JimĂ©nez.

Luis Pereyra studied choreography under the direction of Maestro Carusso in Teatro Colon, the opera house of Buenos Aires, and at Escuela Nacional de Danzas. He took studies with renowned maestros such as Santiago Ayala „El Chúcaro“, Hugo Jiménez, Mario Machaco, Héctor Zaraspe, Irene Acosta, Ana Marini, Wasil Tupin und Mercedes Serrano.

His professional education comprises Modern Dance, classical ballet, jazz dance, folklore, tap dance and he studied music.

Luis Pereyra´s choreographic work is influenced mainly by his Argentinian origin. His works are always closely related to popular and folkloric dances and show a pure choice of elements. His oeuvre is based on his principle: „Unity. What belongs together, should not be separated.“ He regards the culture of Argentine as a unity, and Tango Argentino as a integral part of Argentinian folklore. From his very start he has followed this principle.

Luis Pereyras work: It is his aim to unite all of Argentine´s dances on one stage: Tango, Chacarera, Milonga, Milonga Sureña, Zamba, Gato and Malambo, the Gaucho dance, just to mention a few of them, being on the same level, in connection with each other and creating a picture of the country Argentine as a whole, as one unity. Luis Pereyra considers music as genesis of all dance. For this reason he chooses carefully strong and expressive compositions of original argentinian music and cares about authentic instruments, as Bandoneon, Cajas, Bombo, and others.
