Diavolo Architecture in Motion
At the Tarkington Theatre, The Center for the Performing Arts
Friday, January 16 & Saturday, January 17 @8pm
At the same time thrilling and playful, Diavolo creates a powerful and provocative production that is sure to amaze you.
“Diavolo is a fusion of many different movement vocabularies such as everyday movement, ballet, contemporary, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts, and hip-hop….What we do on stage is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative, but strong themes pervade the work such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith, and love.
I call myself more of an architect of motion than a choreographer.”
– Jacques Heim, Artistic Director
