About DANIELA TUGUES
“Dancing her Tientos, Mrs. Tugues was the queen of flamenco. She’s slender, mesmerizing as a classic car, as she leaned back on her majestic torso. Her hands had a twisted beauty, her face a look of sweet pain. Through the fluttering and footwork of her walks, she told us of her life, of her hopes and disappointments.”
