PLAYS: LA FIESTA DE DELFINA – Désirée 0100 & Luis Miquel Ramirez Muñoz

Welcome to the birthday party! In La fiesta de delfina we welcome two masked figures to a get-together. They bring a surprising mix of dance and clownery in a fragmented, sombre and at times grotesque narrative.

Through themes like celebration, party, and the absence of loved ones, the duo questions the position of performers and ‘entertainment’ – whether in a European black box or at a birthday party in a garage in Latin America.

Desirée Cerocien and Luis Miguel Ramirez Muñoz both emigrated from Latin America to Europe and studied contemporary dance here. With this creation, they want to open up a dialogue around their two-fold cultures and identities, and reflect about what the evolution of and the ties between urban culture, dance and institutional art could look like.
