Dance company Diavolo has developed a reputation for its athletic, acrobatic, dramatic movement on larger-than-life, surrealistic sets and structures. These internationally renowned performers are more than just dancers -- they're gymnasts, actors and athletes who rely on teamwork as well as skill. Under the guidance of artistic director Jacques Heim, they investigate the relationship between humans and the architectural environment and the ways in which these urban structures affect us socially, emotionally and physically. Spoken word artist Steve Connell brings voice to the ideas presented by Diavolo. Learn More

The Shaolin monks have practiced this grueling regimen of kung fu training for over 1,500 years. The troupe’s form of kung fu has been passed down from the Shaolin Temple through generations of masters and disciples. The myriad kung fu styles performed by the members of the troupe represent the finest and most extraordinary feats of discipline, strength, and courage. Additionally, the troupe incorporates mind-blowing chi kung, an ancient Chinese art of cultivating an individual’s energy, into its performance. In China, Shaolin chi kung exercises have long been famous for their ability to enhance health and mental alertness. The Shaolin Kung Fu Spectacular is a stunning display of human prowess and the mysterious powers of chi kung.
