Diego Campos generates dance theatre works that take a humorous, critical, and depictive view about the constant shifts in human behavior within particular social and cultural norms. His work tends to resonate with the audience through imagery, gestural work, and personal experiences. He often invites the viewer to dive into a space of reasoning, wonder, and speculation.
