Professionally Delphina has been a member of American based dance and theater companies Gallim Dance, Anatomiae Occultii, Company XIV, LeeSaar the Company, Nadine Bommer Dance Co, as well as performed work by Sharon Eyal/Gai Behar (L-E-V), Yossi Berg & Oded Graf, Lidia Wos, Alex Neoral, Brenda Way/ODC Dance while a member of Company | E. Within Europe she has been a guest dancer at Mainfranken Theater Würzburg, National Theater Mannheim, and La Trottier Collective, Compagnia Zappalà Danza, and has received several state and city grants to create her own productions in Germany. She is a recipient of the 2009 Metro DC Dance Award for “Outstanding Individual Performance.”

Delphina has worked with a diverse range of communities internationally, teaching Nadine Bommer’s improvisatory physical theater language – Animato Dance Art – and Margie Gillis’s somatic methodology, Conflict Transformation. In 2020 she created and choreographed a full length dance-theater film based upon the historical figure Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz and her work “El Divino Narcisco” in collaboration with Gothamfotographia. Currently she is creating and choreographing a site-specific dance theater performance at the Atelierhaus Altes Güteramt in Mannheim. Through many doubts she seeks to engage with multi-disciplinary work that dismantle singular paradigms in performance and invest in practices and communities that keep the heart beating.

She starts collaborating with Compagnia Zappalà Danza in 2019
