Claudio Valdes Kuri has achieved a privileged position within the theatre world in Mexico.
He confirmed his familiarity with the rules of the theatre by playing with them to construct dramatic works, which unintentionally break the corsets of theatrical structure to create a new language…As a contemporary creator, he knows he can neither forget nor erase tradition entirely. Intelligently, he does not fight this heritage; he uses it as a tool to strengthen the development of his own language and of an absolutely contemporary approach.
