Jacques Heim, Artistic Director
The program will include Transit Space, which premiered in 2012 at the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State, as well a new work entitled Cubicle, co-commissioned by the Ordway.
A visually stunning and athletic dance company, Diavolo uses abstract and recognized structures to explore the relationship between the danger of the environment and the fragility of the human body. Daredevil dancers and gymnasts leap and tumble on architectural elements in a thrilling, high-risk performance style.
This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Minnesota Start Arts Board and General Mills Foundation.
