Audiences are invited to experience the world premiere of Chicago-based composer Tomás Gueglio’s Proa (“prow”) for four dancers and harp, in which harpist and dancers use sound, clothing, and bodies to explore themes of migration, immigration, alienation, and identity. For this iteration of its STAGED series, Dal Niente welcomes the Mazatlán-based Delfos Danza Contemporánea to Chicago. Harpist Ben Melsky, composer Tomás Gueglio, and Delfos dancers developed the sounds, choreography, and structure for this piece during a week-long residency in Mazatlan, Mexico in June of 2017. Each concert will include additional collaborations between Delfos and Dal Niente, including Mario Lavista’s "Cuaderno di Viaje," with choreography by Delfos’ Xitlali Piña Poujol.
