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

A very enjoyable evening at the ballet. Have seen several contemporary companies at the Barclay in past years, most with originality and something to say. This company from Italy was among the best that we have seen. The dancers were excellent and the three presentations were both challenging and exciting. Hope that they return in the future.

This is a company to see if you love contemporary dance. Outstanding performance, interesting choreography and fantastic technique. More often than not, dance at the Barclay is well worth seeing. Intimate venue, reasonably priced seats.
Spellbound Contemporary Ballet was founded in 1994 and is lead by artistic director, Mauro Astolfi. The company’s unique vocabulary of expression is rooted in poetic, emotive, and dynamic bodies creating shifting geometries through space with equal amounts of athleticism and elegance. Spellbound has charmed audiences throughout the world with performances at dance festivals in Italy, Spain, Croatia, Serbia, Germany, Austria, Belarus, France and Thailand.
