“Esperanto” is the most recent production of Danza Viral, the international dancers who have settled here in San Miguel de Allende to show their new, fresh work to the world.
But where did the group get its name? Esperanto is a language that was created in the late 19th century to solve the difficulties of communication between countries with different languages and strengthen links between people, transcending boundaries and cultural differences.
Back from touring through Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Lithuania, the troupe integrated their new learnings about this concept and new body expression into their dancing, which, just like Esperanto, works as a universal language. All dances of the world have in common that they make us fly across borders and reach the hearts of viewers and the dancers themselves. Through movement, this troupe has achieved the expression of more complex emotions, feelings, and thoughts.
The show will be composed of different pieces with various dancers in them, including something totally new to them, to capture the interest of more people and to reach the audience, too, by connecting the viewer to this new experience, the new face of Danza Viral.
