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

My seats were in the fifth row. Great, right? Wrong. The problem with them was that they were on the end, and the puppet stage had been designed deep, so much of the action took place down stage and was fully obstructed from all audience members outside 45 degrees from the center. One had to be nearly dead on in front of the stage to see everything. At the intermission, I relocated to a seat in the center section, which was much better (although now I was now 23 rows back). The production was creative and beautiful to see (when I did finally get to see part of it), but WARNING parents - Wagner did not write for children, so don't expect this to be a kids' show. It is a tragedy, wrought with sex (including incest) and violence. Also, although there is some narration in English, it's a German opera, and all of the lyrics are in the drama's native tongue. English-only children may find that a little bit boring. I suggest leaving the little ones at home for this one, and suspending your own disbelief for a while.
