Performance Update: THE MUSIC OF MARIO LAVISTA
Ticket-holders to tonight's Delfos performance are invited to come early for a 4:30 p.m. panel discussion featuring the great composer Mario LaVista in person. His work is featured on tonight's program. The panel includes fellow composer Shulamit Ran, performance artist Carmen-Helena Tellez and host Elbio Barilari, a respected Chicago writer and composer.
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.”
