The mask is a disguise, but it can also be a useful one; however, all masks fall away and in the end we are left with our true selves. In their newest dance piece, Delfos examines the masks we wear to survive, to love and to endure the world that seems never to want us to take our masks off.
Delfos Danza Contemporánea was founded in 1992 by Mexican choreographers/ dancers Claudia Lavista and Victor Manuel Ruiz. Calling Mazatlán, Mexico homebase, the company is a unique collective of artists whose creative vision is characterized by the fluid physicality and poetic narratives within their diverse repertoire.
