DIAVOLO | Architecture in Motion
DIAVOLO | Architecture in Motion performs a distinct style of Architecture in Motion that uses abstract and recognized structures to explore the relationship between the danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body.
DIAVOLO is a fusion of many different movement vocabularies such as everyday movement, ballet, contemporary, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts, and hip-hop. What they 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.
Founded in 1992 by Jacques Heim, DIAVOLO has an extensive performance history throughout the U.S, Europe, Asia, and Latin America; during the past twenty years, DIAVOLO has performed for hundreds of thousands of concertgoers worldwide as well as millions more on television.
DIAVOLO has created dozens of dance works, forming one of the dance field’s most compelling repertoires, from seminal pieces like Trajectoire (1999-2001) to new works like Cubicle (2015).
Education and outreach are crucial to the mission. DIAVOLO brings dance to tens of thousands of community members annually through young people’s concerts, in-school assemblies, intensive trainings, master classes, and residencies nationwide. DIAVOLO regularly conducts extensive community engagement workshops in schools, hospitals, and juvenile detention centers. In Los Angeles, the DIAVOLO Institute offers dance education and outreach programs that increase active arts participation and community engagement for thousands of Los Angeles youth and families.
