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
The evening features medieval music vocalist Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4 and Aruna Sairam, one of India’s most respected Carnatic vocalists, accompanied by Lebanese-American percussionist Jamey Haddad. Gerard Edery of Morroco, a classically trained baritone, is considered one of the leading interpreters of Sephardic song and has performed at major venues and festival throughout North America. For this performance, he will be accompanied by Zafer Tawil (from Palestine) on oud, and Haddad on percussion. The Daqqa of Taroudant are Morrocan craftsmen and keepers of Sufi traditions dating back to the 8th century. They combine music, chant, dance and percussion into performances that are important religious and social events in the city of Taroudant.
