Considered among Mexico’s leading contemporary dance companies, the Mazatlan, Mexico-based Delfos Danza Contemporánea is a unique artist collective known for their fluid physicality, poetic narratives and diverse repertory. Founded in 1992 by Claudia Lavista and Victor Manuel Ruiz, Delfos has received worldwide praise and several major international awards for dance. Steeped in saturated color and magic realism, the company’s 20th Anniversary program, Resonanciaș, is a suite of seven dances featuring two signature works, including: Del amor y otras barbaridades (Love
and other calamities), a work choreographed for three couples who reveal fragments
of their intimacy (1997); and Trio y Cordon (Three on a String) in which bodies intertwine, weaving a hidden web that inevitably unties them (1992). Also on the program is the company’s newest work, Secretos (Secrets) (2012).
"Delfos expresses themselves with an unleashed intelligence that makes their dances caustic and raw...in which everything is an allusion yet a forceful presence at the same time." - Revista Tiempo Libre, Mexico
