Diavolo: Architecture in Motion redefines dance with dynamic movement, enlightening communities through trust, teamwork and individual expression. Using abstract and recognized structures to explore the relationship between the danger of the environment and the fragility of the human body, Diavolo: Architecture in Motion is a fusion of many different movement vocabularies such as everyday movement, ballet, contemporary, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts and hip-hop.

Founded in 1992 by French-born choreographer and visionary Jacques Heim, Diavolo is a cultural pillar of the Los Angeles community and has performed for hundreds of thousands of concertgoers worldwide as well as millions more on television.

The performance is supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Michigan Council of Arts and Cultural Affairs, General Mills Foundation and Land O’Lakes Foundation.
