Mari Osanai     Oblivion.     Mari Osanai comes all the way from Aomori, Japan; she is one of our featured international guests. This 50-minute solo is not to be missed.   “ She is simply breathtaking, possessing a supple body that seems to have no spine, yet is anchored on a steel spike of consummate control. She is inspired by the natural elements, and her slow, methodical, yet radiantly beautiful explorations of physicality take her dance to a higher plane ”  –  Dance International-   Photo Stephen Delas Heras.
