Safos Dance Theater was founded in 2009 to provide a safe space for artists to create proactive work that focuses on the important and contemporary issues affecting the multi-ethnic communities of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. We are unique in that we go along with but are also tangent from traditional dance standards, aesthetics, and hierarchies. Safos encourages the fusion of diverse genres of dance as well as the merging of dance with other art forms in order to establish new expressions and provide validation. Safos embraces dancers of varying body sizes, uses spoken word from different languages without translations to more accurately portray the bilingual experience, and provides a space for the expression and performance of different ethnic and gendered experiences. Our name, Safos, is based on José Antonio Burciaga’s description of the term Con Safos in the book Drink Cultura: Chicanismo
