Gravity is no match for Diavolo Dance Theater's daredevils of dance as they leap, fly and spin with power, elegance and a thrill of danger in their acclaimed work Transit Space. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, this kinetic, high-flying work explores themes of loss and community while using skate ramps and half-pipes as set pieces to represent an urban environment. Led by Artistic Director Jacques Heim, Diavolo's an internationally renowned modern dance company of dancers, gymnasts, acrobats and athletes. Learn More

The renowned vocal ensemble,Chanticleer, joins the Shanghai Quartet for the southern California premiere of _From the Path of Beauty, _a lyrical and dramatic song cycle for voice and string quartet. In this specially-commissioned work, celebrated composer "Chen Yi ":http://hometown.aol.com/chenyi/myhomepage/profile.htmlshares her deeply personal feelings about her native country, China. The Barclay is especially pleased to invite Chanticleer back to their stage. This “orchestra of voices,” combined with the intimate acoustics of the theatre’s Cheng Hall, never fails to astonish.
