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.

The music of Pink Floyd has spanned generations and infected millions with its eclectic genre and psychedelic light shows. Experiencing the music of Pink Floyd in person is a must and no other group captures their essence better than Brit Floyd – The World’s Greatest Pink Floyd Show.

The ensemble compliment each other very well and the guitar solos, vocals, and backup singers were not only spot on but had us on the edge of our seat! The amazing performance was accompanied by original video and brand new animation that was awesome and connected the storyline.

In a wooded canyon with a small stream, the Griffith Park Bird Sanctuary and Trail offers views of many species of birds in their natural habitat along a winding path. It’s a relatively short hike, but one that offers great views and connects to a wider system of trails.

The bird community represented most of the rich diversity found elsewhere in the Santa Monica Mountains before the fire. More than 200 species have been recorded here over the years, and around 150 occur every year. Now, the park and sanctuary are gradually being revitalized.

Some of the more interesting residents of the community include Cinnamon Teal and Black-necked Stilt along the L.A. River, Hutton’s Vireo and Purple Finch in canyons, and Rufous-crowned Sparrow in arid chaparral and scrub. These birds depend on the wild areas of the park for their survival in the middle of the city.

From March through June, nearly 70 species may nest, particularly in the many small canyons that drain off the slopes into the Los Angeles River. The park’s boundaries take in high, chaparral-covered ridges, shady picnic areas, and natural wetland habitat along the river.

The Bird Sanctuary Trail opened back up after the 2007 Griffith Park fire left it unusable to the public. One of the losses in the park fire was the bird sanctuary.

After thousands of volunteers–most notably the Pacific Asian Volunteer Association who adopted the project–the trail once again opened to the public. Of course, Griffith Park’s loudest cheerleader, Councilman Tom LaBonge, was there to tell everyone about it and take a hike with them. The short loop trail has some nicely shaded portions and crosses a small stream.

Griffith-fire

Find the trailhead next to the actual Bird Sanctuary which is just north of the Greek Theatre on Vermont Canyon Road. The trail begins to the left of the sanctuary’s fence.

Within less than a mile, it ends, but you’ll meet up with three other trails to choose from: the Charlie Turner Trail (left, takes you down to the Griffith Observatory), 3-Mail Trail (straight ahead, takes you Mount Hollywood) and the East Ridge (Hogback) Trail (right, takes you to Dante’s View and later, the Glendale Peak).

575

If you want to make a loop out of the hike, there’s unofficially a trail heading down back to street level that takes you by a water tank. You can find it before the trail fork where there is a nice view of the Observatory. However, it can get pretty steep and has lots of loose gravel.

After a sold-out performance at The Greek Theatre last year, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience concert, returns to thrill audiences once again! The show is a unique trifecta of an over-the-top rock concert featuring the unforgettable blues-rock music of Led Zeppelin, atmospheric video, light displays, and the history that Bonham shares with the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band.

The energy is palpable as the stunning atmosphere and powerful live performance takes the audience to the point of sensory overload at The Greek Theatre.

The show features Jason Bonham on drums, Tony Catania on guitar and theremin, Stephen Leblanc on keyboards/pedal-steel guitars, Michael Devin on bass, and James Dylan on lead vocals. The band combines to create an authentic Zeppelin sound and performance.
