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
NCI Highlights_ commemorates choreographic successes originally created during NCI workshops between 2004 and 2012. In total, there have been thirty-seven NCI choreographers, who each created a new piece through this initative. Twenty-two of these original productions have been performed by other companies across the country. NCI Highlights_ celebrates the national artistic impact of this project. Excerpts from several of these pieces will be revived by the 2013 ensemble of dancers, brought back to life on the very stage where they first debuted! NCI Highlights represents the progress and passion of the National Choreographers Initiative’s past ten seasons, and will be a celebration you will not want to miss.
The brainchild of Artistic Director Molly Lynch, NCI is a unique dance project that convenes four promising choreographers and an ensemble of sixteen professional dancers for a three-week intensive process of contemporary dance creation. NCI culminates in a one-night engagement at Irvine Barclay Theatre for the debut performance of these new works.
