Diavolo: 'Architecture in Motion'

Featured on America’s Got Talent, The Diavolo dance company is heralded as both a dance and acrobatic group. The production got its name because it was the best way to describe artistic director Jacque Heim’s work. Architecture in Motion explores the human body in combination with architectural environments.

The concept is based on a single premise, architecture around society has an emotional and psychological effect on humanity.

The work aims to convey how humans are an extension of their architectural environment which is based on movement and interaction. Heim prefers to think of himself in literal terms as an architect of motion rather than a choreographer. The New York Times stated that the production has a “... a straightforward playfulness with props and physicality that elicits cheers from the audience.” The showtimes are 1, 3, and 7 p.m at the Valley Performing Arts Center on November 11th.
