PRESENTED BY: BLUMENTHAL PERFORMING ARTS

I would describe the work of Diavolo as Architecture in Motion. I am interested in the architecture of space and how we inhabit it. I am fascinated by the relationship and interaction of humans with their architectural environment – how it is affecting us, not just socially but physically and emotionally. I call myself more of an architect of motion than a choreographer. 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.

– Jacques Heim, Artistic Director
