THE PASSION OF FLAMENCO

A host of local institutions, including Duke's dance and romance studies departments and the Durham and North Carolina arts councils, have a great Valentine's Day gift for you: A three-night-stand at Motorco by Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana. The incandescent company was founded to increase the presence of Spanish dance in the United States, and it has succeeded in thirty-two seasons of international performance. Under cofounder and artistic director Carlota Santana, with extroverted displays of virtuosity and brio, Flamenco Vivo has not only mainstreamed flamenco traditions, but also widened them with the infusion of other dance styles in new, original works. Duke Performances brought the group to Page Auditorium a few years ago, but, seated at tables at Motorco, you can get much cozier with the passion and drama Flamenco Vivo stomps and swirls—and with your V Day date, if that's how you roll. —Brian Howe
