Speakeasy Series: Delfos Danza Contemporanea Dance Company says
APR 8 / 12PM
Velocity Founders Theater 1621 12th Ave
FREE and open to all
Presented in partnership with UW World Series

Join this conversation with Seattle dance icon PAT GRANEY and the co-director of DELFOS DANZA CONTEMPORANEA. Claudia Lavista and Graney will discuss contemporary dance in Mexico/Seattle; and how they, and other artists, are impacted by what is happening in their countries artistically, politically, and economically.

Delfos Danza Contemporánea was founded in 1992 by Mexican choreographers/dancers Claudia Lavista and Victor Manuel Ruiz in Mexico City. In 1996 they moved to Mazatlán, México with the vision of creating dynamic new works as well as developing a professional training program for contemporary dancers. The company is a unique collective of artists whose creative vision is characterized by fluid physicality and poetic narratives.

Delfos is a company and a school with a mission built upon the essential elements of creativity, education, dialogue and collaboration. They are also a group of artists and educators interested in generating new ideas, new approaches, new forms and projects. Delfos Danza Contemporanea is interested in participating with other artists, companies and choreographers in artistic endeavors and partnerships. They believe in the power of dance and art, which gives balance to our communities, our societies, and the world in which we live.

Join us for a MASTER CLASS with the company, 9:30-11:15am! Get tickets to see the company perform at University of Washington - Meany Hall April 9-11. This Speakeasy Series and Master Class is presented through The Velocity Sessions, a partnership with UW World Series.
