Dance company Diavolo has developed a reputation for their athletic, acrobatic, dramatic movement on larger-than-life, surrealistic sets and structures. These internationally renowned performers are more than just dancers -- they're gymnasts, actors and athletes who rely on teamwork as well as skill. Under the guidance of artistic director Jacques Heim, they investigate the relationship between humans and the architectural environment and the ways in which these urban structures affect us socially, emotionally and physically. Spoken word artist Steve Connell brings voice to the ideas presented by Diavolo. Learn More
The Post Natyam Collective is a transnational, web-based coalition of women artists who creatively and critically engage South Asian dance. Unique to their networked nature, they use collaborative processes online to produce innovative dance and media work that rigorously tackles South Asian traditions and theory. In addition to dance, they work with multimedia, theater, art installations, creative writing, music, and scholarship. Drawing on these diverse tools, they create feminist, postcolonial, border-crossing artistic works shared with audiences on the web, in theaters, universities, and with communities. The Post Natyam Collective consists of Sandra Chatterjee (Munich/Salzburg/India), Cynthia Ling Lee (Los Angeles), Shyamala Moorty (Los Angeles), and Anjali Tata (Kansas City), with Sangita Shresthova (Los Angeles) as an affiliated media choreographer.
