Noche Flamenca, the Madrid-based company of dancers, singers and musicians founded by Barrio and her husband, Martin Santangelo, convey the very essence of this most complex and mysterious art form without the use of tricks or gimmicks. All aspects of flamenco – song, dance, and music – are interrelated, creating a true communal spirit among the group’s ten performers. But Barrio is the indisputable star, a great artist without pretense, who makes you aware that, above its virtuosic feet, flamenco is an art of curves, arcs and circles. Her body is her soul’s instrument, ensnared by the music, and you feel yourself fortunate to be in the same space with her.
