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

Quotes & Highlights
“Completely seductive.” —The Guardian_ _(UK)
Watch a video of Knots.
Pronounced “kush came,” this company will make its first West Coast appearance en route to New York. Controversial, startling and aggressive in movement and text, this dance-theater piece is based on the studies of couples’ relationships by noted psychologist R.D. Laing. Widely acclaimed on the international festival circuit, this award-winning evening, bursting with high-octane choreography, is both brutal and touching — and at times, hilarious. Virtuoso choreographer Liam Steel (of Stan Won’t Dance) directs the six performers of CoisCéim in a show that tries to untangle the complexity of human relationships.
