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.

Harmony: A New Musical

February 17, 2014 — 2 Comments

Harmony is inspired by the true story of The Comedian Harmonists, six young men in 1920s and 1930s Germany who rose from unemployed street musicians to become world-famous entertainers, selling millions of records, starring in over a dozen films, and selling out the most prestigious concert halls around the world. Yet while The Comedian Harmonists’ sophisticated music, paired with hilarious comedy, made them the brightest of stars, the group’s mixture of Jews and non-Jews put them on a collision course with history.

Their amazing story inspired longtime collaborators, the legendary Barry Manilow and theatre veteran Bruce Sussman, to create a spectacular new musical with an original score that celebrates this extraordinary group of friends and ensures their quest for true harmony in the most discordant chapter of human history will never be forgotten. “We are both thrilled to finally return to our first love–writing a musical together. Especially this one,” Manilow and Sussman shared. “It has been an indescribable honor to spend all this time in the company of these six extraordinary men.”

The Queen Mary presents the annual ScotsFestival & International Highland Games XXI!  Guests will catch a glimpse of Scotland’s rich culture by  watching world champions compete for reigning titles, or testing their own might and skill during novice demonstrations and contests.

ryk_main

Eighty-three years ago, in a small seaside town in Scotland called Clydebank, construction began on the RMS Queen Mary. Exemplifying the fine craftsmanship of Scotland, the Queen Mary’s Scottish legacy is undeniable. The ship’s glorious heritage is celebrated annually with a two-day festival honoring her Scottish roots.

T(large)-Scot-3

The Queen Mary’s ScotsFestival showcases nearly fifty Scottish clans and vendors amidst a weekend of spirited professional and amateur competitions in piping, drumming, massed bands, darts, Highland dancing, and athletics. Scottish Highland Games, a pre-cursor to the Olympic Games, were designed to test the strength, skill and technique of ancient warriors by face offs in stones, hammer throw, weights for distance, weight over bar, sheaf and the famed caber toss.

T(large)-Scot-4 (1)

Weekend festivities kick off with a Grand Parade and Address to the Haggis and include Border Collie sheep-herding, firing demonstrations, and historic re-enactments daily. Adult guests can partake in whisky tasting sessions with aged malt experts, and craft beer samplings while the wee laddies and lassies bear witness to Queen Mary’s coronation, knighting ceremonies, and even take part in wee Highland games. Saturday night’s “Rock YerKilt” concert features the best Scottish Rock & Celtic bands around.

“The annual ScotsFestival and Highland Games is a truly unique event that pays homage to the Queen Mary’s storied history,” commented Steve Sheldon, Director of Entertainment Events at Queen Mary. “It gives visitors a chance to experience Scotland’s finest right here in Long Beach.”

About the Queen Mary

Located in the Port of Long Beach, the Queen Mary features a rich maritime history, authentic Art Deco décor, and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Long Beach city skyline. At the time of her maiden voyage in May of 1936, she was considered the grandest ocean liner ever built. The Queen Mary’s signature restaurants include the award-winning Sir Winston’s and Chelsea Chowder House & Bar as well as a weekly Champagne Sunday Brunch served in the ship’s Grand Salon. History buffs enjoy the ship’s museum and Glory Days tour, guests of all ages love the Ghosts and Legends show, and the ship is currently featuring the renowned Diana: Legacy of a Princess exhibit and Tea Room. The Queen Mary features 80,000 square feet of event space in 14 remarkable Art Deco salons as well as a tri-level, 45,000-square-foot Exhibit Hall. The Queen Mary boasts 346 staterooms including nine full suites.
