Dzul Dance fuses ritual, modern, ballet, and aerial arts -- transforming bodies into earthbound and airborne forces of nature. The company is an exciting and unique intermarriage of forms, using intense physicality, innovative partnering, and daring aerial work to examine the ever-changing relationships between human beings, nature, and culture. Dzul's versatile choreographies illuminate, both spiritually and psychologically, the vast array of drama and beauty inherent in universal human experience. Artistic Director/Choreographer Javier Dzul's newest work, El Beso del Diablo, examines Goethe's Faust, focusing on one man's choice to embrace the power of the devil in order to live love. Dzul uses his native Mayan mythological beliefs and ritualistic movement style as a foundation to explore the Faustian themes of dualism and mystic romanticism. Appropriate for all ages.
