Program

Undeniably one of the most significant and entertaining dance companies of Latin America, Delfos makes its Chicago debut with three performances (7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 27-28, and 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29) in Ravinia’s most intimate space, Bennett • Gordon Hall – where every seat is a prime location.

Physicality, poetry and plasticity characterize the Delfos dancers in their neverending quest and discovery of the unexpected. The New York Times says, “Delfos encompasses shifting fashions in a distinctively playful, emotionally gutsy way.”
