La Fiesta de Delfina


  • 30.05 > 10.06.2023

The per­for­man­ce, led by two mas­ked charac­ters insi­de a bir­th­day par­ty decor, dis­plays a stran­ge mix of dan­ce and clown insi­de a frag­men­ted, gloomy and some­ti­mes gro­tesque nar­ra­ti­ve. Treating topics such as cele­bra­ti­on, par­ty, death and absen­ce of the loved ones, La Fiesta de Delfina ques­ti­ons the pla­ce of per­for­mers and enter­tain­ment” whe­ther it’s insi­de of a European BlackBox or insi­de a gara­ge bir­th­day par­ty in Latin America. 

This pie­ce is for the per­for­mers a step towards dia­log and syn­cre­tism of their dou­ble cul­tu­re (they both emi­gra­ted from Latin America to Europe whe­re they dis­co­ver­ed Contemporary Dance), and a reflec­ti­on on what the evo­lu­ti­on and the emer­ging rela­ti­ons­hips bet­ween urban cul­tu­re, dan­ce and insti­tu­ti­o­nal art could be.
