Diavolo: Architecture in Motion is an internationally renowned performance company that reinvents dance, reimagines theater, and redefines thrills through a fusion of acrobatics, martial arts, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and other dance programs. Diavolo’s esteemed artistic director Jacques Heim returns to Los Angeles with his extraordinary dance production of Transit Space and Trajectoire.

The hour-long, jam-packed performance at the Greek will feature performances of Transit Space and its signature piece – Trajectoire. There will be special guest appearances by spoken word artist, and Transit Space narrator Steve Connell and by renowned film composer, Nathan Wang who composes Trajectoire.

Transit Space explores themes of feeling lost, finding a sense of purpose and coming together. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, Transit Space uses skateboard ramps as set pieces to represent an urban environment with ever-shifting physical and emotional spaces.

Trajectoire is 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, Trajectoire illustrates the transcendence of the human soul against all odds.

Diavolo explores the relationship between the danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body. The performances illuminate dance through a dynamic and powerful repertoire utilizing unique architectural creations as the focal point for dancers to confront, challenge and manipulate. Diavolo is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative but rather strong themes that pervade the work-themes such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith and love.
