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

It was very original & thought provoking. The program gave an excellent introduction regarding the dance and settings. This was very helpful and gave an understanding to appreciating the action on the stage. Unfortunately, the audience had a sufficient number of idiots who couldn't contain their rather loud laughter over the unusual moves. Next to me were a popcorn eater and a laughing hyena. Perhaps, they thought this was going to be a teen age flick.
This is the only West Coast engagement during the company’s U.S. debut tour.
