Chiche Nunez has lived in Berlin since 1998 and works as a dancer, artistic director, dance teacher and choreographer of Tango Argentino. As a student of the famous José Brahemcha, called “el Turco José”, his dance is characterized by the subtleties of the Urquiza style. Inspired by styles of other art forms, he developed his own character for his dance. In his Berlin dance school he has trained and accompanied generations of social and professional tango dancers. His career so far has been captured in the award-winning documentary “Con el Tango”, which has been shown at international festivals since 2021. For over 10 years he has been bringing inclusive tango to the stage, with a focus on artistic wheelchair integration, with RambaZamba Theater.
