Osende outstanding in third-annual Valentine’s show
Maria Osende is spellbinding as she takes flamenco dance to a high art form.
For the third year in a row her company wowed a Valentine’s night audience enjoying wine and tapas at the Flamenco Valentine. The entire show of musicians, dancers and singers evokes a night in Spain when everything is wrong but life is rich.
Without losing any of the passion or power in flamenco’s folk roots, Osende uses her entire body as a kinetic sculpture to rapidly and profoundly express emotion, story and images.
