Description: 

Kathleen O’Hanlon and her spouse, Theadore Zambuni, were both originally from Samos Greece. This famed dance duo were popular among the vaudevillian circuit. O’Hanlon was noted for her performance in Schubert’s 1921 production of “The Passing Show” in the famous Winter Garden Theater. Additional work with Schubert, for the duo, included his 1921 musical revue “The Century Revue”. Prior to this O’Hanlon made appearances in the following musicals, the 1919 “Oh, What a Girl!”, and the 1920 production of “The Midnight Rounders”. In this portrait O’Hanlon and Zambuni are captured in a flamenco dance. Zambuni leans intimately into O’Hanlon, clasping her tightly to him and tilting her rhythmically to the left. O’Hanlon, with hands grasped by Zambuni, looks intensely over her shoulder at her dancing partner. Each of the dancer’s postures are in complete harmony with the other, as apparent by their extended leg positioning. The duo are dressed in classic flamenco attire. O’Hanlon wears a bare shoulder dress, with a long fringe skirt, and matching shawl. Zambuni wears a gaucho hat, shimmering striped shirt, dark tie, studded belt and dark wide legged trousers. The background is manipulated chemically to enhance the centered figures, adding light aura’s that mold to the pair.
