LA-Based Architectural Dance Company DIAVOLO Comes to the Palace February 13
Posted: January 8, 2019
DIAVOLO returns to Columbus following its success as one of the top 10 finalists in season 12 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” The Los Angeles-based company continues to push a new edge of performance with Artistic Director Jacques Heim’s inventive genius and his fearless, athletic daredevils. The program will include Diavolo’s signature work Trajectoire and new work Voyage, featuring meticulously designed architectural structures that have become the company’s hallmark. With a style that encompasses dance, acrobatics, and gymnastics, DIAVOLO explores the relationship between the human body and its architectural environment.
CAPA presents DIAVOLO at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Wednesday, February 13, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $33.50-$103.50 and can be purchased in-person at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.capa.com, or by phone at (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
Broadway World called Trajectoire “full of incredible feats of daring and acrobatics … the dance equivalent of going down a roller coaster… a pure shot of adrenaline.”
DIAVOLO goes where none have gone before, beyond reality, into a world that exceeds your wildest dreams. “We are very much the NFL of dance,” says Artistic Director Jacques Heim. “We practice like football players… you have to be a part of a team, because everybody works with one another.” DIAVOLO has been presented throughout Asia, Europe, Latin American and the United States.
