DIAVOLO | Architecture in Motion® | Apr 11, 2020 | Sat 7:30pm | Touhill Performing Arts Center
Seen by over 95 million people as a top 10 finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, DIAVOLO shatters boundaries and soars beyond the grasps of gravity. Led by the inventive genius of Artistic Director Jacques Heim and his fearless, athletic daredevils, the Los Angeles based company continues to push a new edge of performance. With a unique style that encompasses dance, acrobatics, and gymnastics, DIAVOLO explores the relationship between the human body and its surrounding architectural environment.
Voyage is DIAVOLO’s newest adventure, is inspired by travels in space and the 50th Anniversary of the first Moon Landing. A young woman dreams of traveling distances only astronauts can, escaping from the ordinary world into a surreal landscape of infinite possibilities. Gravity-defying bodies join her on the journey in a universe that is alive with kinetic energy, fantastical whimsy, and surprising transformation
Trajectoire takes the audience on a visceral and emotional journey through the ebb and flow of the human experience. As the performers struggle to find their balance on a voyage of destiny and destination, the work shows the transcendence of the human soul against all odds.
