Safos Dance Theatre

FY 2017 – 2018

 

Safos’ mission is to create contemporary artistic forms that reflect the common experiences of our diverse community. Focusing predominately on Latina/os, Safos provides a safe space for artists, encourages innovative movements, and uses nontraditional forms and body types to represent the cultural diversity of the US/Mexico borderlands.

 

Pictured is “Braceros” which was created in loving memory of the choreographer’s father Juan “Johnny” Montoya, the dance reflects his work as Bracero picking watermelon, cantaloupe in Southern Arizona in the 1960s.
